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"

Health Bar Size Increase

Hello everyone, I assume others may be curious about how to do this as well. I am trying to create a health bar that upon an item pickup it increases the players overall health bar. For example the player starts with 50/50 health on health bar. Picks up an item that increases health bar size. Health bar size increased to 50/60. Now they can pickup 10 more health. Example of a game that does this is Bioshock. Any help on how to do this would be appreciated.

Did you ever figure this out?

Here is a tutorial I made that will show you how to create a dynamic health bar. I did not mention in the video but be sure to actually change the player health variable that is linked to the progress bar percent for this increased health bar size to actually represent added player health. So if player health was 100 and max health was 100, the bar is full for any size. Once you increase the size of the health bar be sure to change "max health" to something like 125 so that the progress bar will now be at 100% when player health is 125 instead of 100.
