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"

Headshot: making target areas take more damage?

Is there a way to have separate collision objects on an actor which takes different amounts of damage: such as the head.

Yes, they are called "hitboxes" and widely used in FPS games to speed up caculations. You basically create a number of hit boxes (ellipsoids for heads, cylinders for arms etc.) and attach these to specific bones. You can use the "Attach to" node for it. When you trace a line the hit result gives you the hit component as well as the actor. Then you just need to setup a mechanism to tell you where you hit.

Far Cry 2 and Metal Gear Solid 2 even achieved "Heartshots" with those. It was fun to shoot people in the heart for an instakill.
