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"

Adding collision to a pyramid-shaped particle system

Hi all, so I have this square pyramidal particle system I got from the content examples.

What would be the best way to add collision for this?

It doesn't need to be too exact but it can be. I'd prefer it less exact and more general but either works.

Perhaps adding a mesh data object in the shape of your desired collision and then either turn off "Render in main pass" or just give it a masked material to make it see through? Then use that mesh data for particle collision?

So basically adding a static mesh with overlap collision in the shape of the collision I want and turning it invisible?

That would be my best guess. There really isn't a "custom collision" module present, at least one that I'm aware of.
