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"

Instead of using Get Mouse Position, try using the Get Hit Result Under Cursor node. That will give you a hit result if there is something valid underneath the cursor. If you break the hit result (choose Break Hit Result, you may have to turn off context sensitive when you right click) you can get the location and spawn the particle effect there. I also checked for a valid hit before spawning the particle effect.

Hope that helps!
