Currently there isn't a way (that I know of) to rotate a billboard particle through the drop command. The RotationVelocity parameter works on SpaceObject particles but not Billboard particles - can this be changed please?
There must be SOME way to enable this feature, as billboard particles emitted from a #particleSource can rotate.

Any movement on this issue? I cannot see any reason why the rotation functionality would need to be disabled deliberately, so either an update of why it is, or an acknowledgement that it is indeed a bug, would be welcome :)

OK, last night I discovered that, either as a new functionality or as an accidental find, I can now rotate billboard particles on a per-drop basis.
The odd thing is, that the effect is rather variable between particle types. Some particles need a low number to be apparent, other particles need a anumber a magnitude higher, and yet others need even more. I haven't yet found a reason for this (but I also haven't really tried) but it definately does not act the way it's documented.
