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"

Hey Yugris -

You will want to add an Initial Location Module to your Cascade emitter. In the Initial Location module set the Distribution to Uniform and set the Min values to say -500,-500,-500 and the Max Values to 500,500,500. If you also toggle the b3DDraw to true then you should also see the box drawn by those min and max values in the Cascade Viewport (you will not see it in the level.) Simply adjust the values as you need to in order to get the look you are after. For instance you may not want any Z value and only have you rain spawn within the flat plane generated by the X and Y values.

Thank You

Eric Ketchum
