New Plecter Pixel info and starter settings

Ok, for those who have been receiving your PlecterPixel sabers, and you're finally over the initial "OH MY GOD THIS IS SO COOL!!!" moment, here is a rundown on the unstable effects that you can use, and the parameters that I used in the video so you can get a starting point.

First, the effects. The effects are PER FONT. You don't want these to be in the global override folder. This way you can have different effects for different fonts.

You have the Unstable= parameter which is where you tell it what effect you want. '0' is off, 1 is the 'unstable blade', 2 is the Flame blade, and 3 is the Rain Sizzle blade.

The following are the other parameters that affect the look of the unstable FX:

Lcool=
Hcool=
SparkF=
SparkD=
MapB=
MapC=
Drift=

Lcool and Hcool represent the 'spread' of the effect, or where it starts and ends on the blade.

SparkF - is the Frequency of the "Sparking" of the unstable effect i.e. speed.

SparkD - is the Density of the Sparking effect, i.e. how much sparking there is.

MapB (Brightness in RICE) - This alters the contrast or brightness of the "heat color" or effect color vs. the underlying blade color.

MapC (Color in RICE) - This alters how much of the underlying blade color vs the heat color us used.

Drift - This turns on or off a sort of 'smoothing' effect between sparks. It can give a more organic energy look to things like the unstable blade.

Important things: You will want to adjust your FoC color of the blade color profile you most want to use for each effect. The FoC color is the "Heat" color, or the color of the unstable effect, so for example a Red blade profile, I would suggest altering the FoC color to a bright orange, bordering on yellow to give the best look to the sparking effect of both the Kylo-esque and Flame effects.

The Speed of the effects is also affected by the Flicker settings (FLKS and FLKD) so you will want to check on and enable those. I found that FLKS=12 and FLKD=22 works great for all the affects but FLKS=10-17 works great too, I just wouldn't stray too far from those numbers.

Alright, here are the settings I used in the video:

Unstable=1 (Kylo)
Lcool=58
Hcool=183
SparkF=143
SparkD=19
MapB=13
MapC=63
Drift=0 (1 also works well)

Unstable=2 (Flame, my favorite)
Lcool=0
Hcool=-70
SparkF=120
SparkD=10
MapB=94
MapC=59
Drift=1

Unstable=3 (Rain)
Lcool=28
Hcool=166
SparkF=120
SparkD=12
MapB=76
MapC=2
Drift=1

Obviously, your mileage may vary and I encourage everyone to play around with these and see what we can all generate with them. These were just some decent starting points I found while testing these effects. As always, have fun, and if you have any questions, ask away!
