Change the color of reflected particles in particular

I'm creating a project with Particular (latest version) where I would like to have the color of my particles change when they are reflected off a solid layer that I am using. The particle generation and reflection are all working fine I just want the color to change after the collision.

You'll need to use aux particles of different color that are born at bounce event. (I have Particular 2, but I would think it works the same way in the current version.)

If you set the collision event of the main particles to "kill" and have each particle emit exactly one aux particle at bounce event and inherit the velocity, they will appear to "bounce" and change color. Set aux particle system gravity to the same setting as main.

The aux particles won't bounce again, they will disappear if they hit the floor solid again.

Thanks. Makes sense I will try that.
