This class inherits the properties of the PxParticleBase class.
The particle system class manages a set of particles. Particles can be created, released and updated directly through the API. When a particle is created the user gets an id for it which can be used to address the particle until it is released again.
Particles collide with static and dynamic shapes. They are also affected by the scene gravity and a user force, as well as global velocity damping. When a particle collides, a particle flag is raised corresponding to the type of actor, static or dynamic, it collided with. Additionally a shape can be flagged as a drain (See PxShapeFlag), in order to get a corresponding particle flag raised when a collision occurs. This information can be used to delete particles.
The particles of a particle system don't collide with each other. In order to simulate particle-particle interactions use the subclass PxParticleFluid.
