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"

How do I get "Inherit Parent Vel" to work?

I have a muzzleflash particle effect and each emitter has Inherit Parent Vel. The particles don't seem to be keeping up with the muzzle so it doesn't look like it's working. What am I doing wrong?

I think You have to use "Spawn emitter attached" function instead of spawning at certain location, or call AttachTo on spawned particle system component. Otherwise the Inherit Parent Velocity particle module doesn't have information who is the parent of this particle.

Thanks! Adding the particle system to the blueprint component list and then "Activating" it via blueprint seems to do the trick. The component list section even lets you specify the socket. It still looks a little off but that might be due to bugs elsewhere. It definitely seems to inherit the velocity now.
