This part of the tutorial presented a way to use textures (combined image samplers, in fact) inside shaders. To do this we created an image and allocated and bound a memory to it.

As the amount of fuel on the fire decreases, so does the visual effect created by the particle system and the lighting created by the fire particles in that system. Once the fuel is completely gone, we...
