I would like to request a better, more realistic explosion. The ones we have now are not very good. Anyway, I'm in no hurry, so please take your time(s) in making an epic KA-BOOM.

If you want better explosions, you'll probably have to use stock footage. The current particle system isn't going to create much better results than are already out there.

Axeman is right. you can try looking for free stock footage but the quality tends to lack. if you are willing to pay you can try detonationfilms (they might have a few free stuff) or another really good source is VideoCopilot's Action Essentials 2
