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"

"Cast To X" vs "Cast To X Class" - difference?

I've moved from 4.4 to 4.6 and now every "Cast to" has two options per class, for example:

Cast To Weapon | Cast To Weapon Class

Cast To Monster | Cast To Monster Class

etc. What's the difference between them?

The difference between them is that an Object Reference type is placed somewhere in the level (it has already been created at the time the cast is called), while the class version does not yet exist.

Zak gives a really good explanation of this in the following video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xu7ymhN_7Lo

Hope that helps!

EDIT: Tensa beat me too it :)
