New Resource: LightTrail
I wrote a ton more about the system in the blend file, so I'll put just a little bit of it here.
LightTrail is a trail system that I made since I couldn't find one for Blender 2.6. There are a few options that you can use with LightTrail to customize your trail effect. Note that the trail's physics mesh is not updated while it moves around - to do that, you have to do it yourself with either the Replace Mesh logic brick, or with Python.
As I'm tending to do with my newer projects, you can grab the script and an example for it at my Google Code page. For this one, you should be able to just press P to play (you don't have to move the script to the examples folder or anything).
Hey, if you want to see more cool stuff from me (resources or game projects), think about donating to me. You can do so right on the right side of this page.
