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"

Your end location should be start + forward vector 100. Right now you are shooting a ray from player location to forward vector 100 which will be something like (100,0,0) in the case where you're facing down the x-axis.

Hope that helps

Hey sumsar,

You would need to multiply the Forward Vector by 100, and then add it to the Start Location. It should look something like this:
