Show spark effects when player doesn't look directly at them

My first suggestion here!
While making a custom animation with some spark effects, I figured out the spark effects are not always generated, it happens when the player doesn't look at them.
It is annoying when you want that the particles stay for a long amount of time. In my case, I want to generate continuous lines in the sky behind a moving plane, and they are generated during a limited amount of time and far from the track, so it shouldn't decrease too much the frame rate. In this example, most players won't notice them, because it is a track where you rarely see the sky, but it could be nice for future tracks and for other creators.
My idea is to add an option that forces the game to generate spark effects even when the player doesn't look at them, and it would be disabled by default.
Re-Volter since 2004 and creator since 2020.

Hello and welcome to the forum! The behavior is intentional - sparks are only generated when the object / generator is within the camera's view. But having an option to always generate would be nice indeed.
