Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Is there any way to make burst lists respect a particle parameter distribution?


I have a particle system for a ship thruster made that is controlled via a particle parameter (only turning on/off with keypresses etc). However once I started using burst lists to spawn my particles they are no longer respecting the parameter and spawning instantly along with the ship.

Any way around this?

Hey Digital Moose -

Under the Burst List Method is Burst Scale, You can change the Distribution on that Module to use a Particle Parameter and set the scale to 0 will kill the system and 1 will be exactly what you have in the Count list in your BP as if it was a Rate based Spawn.

Thank You

Eric Ketchum
