If you use the search button, and put "meteor" in it, you'd find it.

OK everyone i made my own meteor effect. i think its ok considering i only started on this tuesday. the setting are as follows:

1. open up a default muzzle flash, but add these textures:
-blobby_glow_1
-blobby_grey
-flame_3
-fog_1
-greysmoky1
-realflame_06
-smoke_1
-smoke_2
-softsmoke_05

2. change the length of the muzzle flash to about 440-450 (not 440-450 frames, the actual length of the flash)

3. I made my muzzle meteor 15 frames in length but you can change it depending on yur project. For the first frame i put my meteor in the top left corner, and in the last frame i put my meteor in the bottom right corner. during the frames in between it will travel to its endpoint.

4. next, open up a particle explosion from the particle group. i made mine about 40 frames. line it up with where your meteor stopped, and you will have the explosion of the meteor hitting the earth.

hope it helped.
