A multiscale meshfree particle method for macroscopic mean field approximations of generalized interacting particle models is developed and investigated. The method is working in a uniform way for large and small interaction radii. The well resolved case for large interaction radius is treated, as well as underresolved situations with small values of the interaction radius. In the present work we extend the approach from Klar and Tiwari [SIAM Multiscale Mod. Sim., 12 (2014), pp. 1167--1192] for porous media type limit equations to a more general case, including in particular hyperbolic limits. The method can be viewed as a numerical transition between a numerical method for microscopic interacting particle systems and a meshfree particle method for macroscopic equations. We discuss in detail the numerical performance of the scheme for various examples and the potential gain in computation time. The latter is shown to be particularly high for situations near the macroscopic limit. There are various applications of the method to problems involving mean field approximations in swarming, traffic, pedestrian, or granular flow simulation.
