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"

You've got a very broad question here that I will do my best to point you to some tutorials and information that may help in getting you setup. Unfortunately, there is not a specific "How do I make a rail gun" tutorial, so you'll have to take some of the information and tweak it to your needs.

First you'll want to familiarize yourself with our information sources:

You'll want to learn a combination of things to get everything working though. Some of the areas you'll need to know for this are:

  • Animations

  • Rigged Weapons

  • Particle Effects with Cascade

  • Blueprints for setting up the weapon

Here is Fighter's tutorial for setting up a custom weapon to get you started with some basics.
