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"

Beam emitter spawn event generator


I'm trying to make a lightning effect, i finally got the beam to work how i want but now i'm having trouble making an actual flash. I tried using event generator and receiver so that on spawn a particle with a light would flash. However this doesnt work since the beam isnt actually emitting particles, the spawn is set to 0 but there is just a beam that changes position and flashes with alpha. This is the only way i could get a beam that flashes with interval.

Is there an alternative to event generators that i could use to sync up the flashing lightning with the light flash?

Greets, Joe

Did you try inverting the process so your light spawns the beam with an event generator? I have never honestly tried this with beams, so not sure it will work as expected but it's worth a shot.
