I've done this before (or something close to it) by using COPS. Load your
texture or generate something in COPS and then use the pic expression in
one or both of the birth probability fields of the source POP. In mine I was
emitting from Prim (Center) radomnly. Sorry I can't be more specific at the
I'm pretty sure I came across this in OdForce or something. I didn't figure
it out on my own. :)
