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"

I have a system where The player goes next to an npc and presses enter to communicate with the NPC. The text will only activate when I am at the edge of the sphere collider. How should I make the text activate while inside of the sphere. Thanks for the help.

hemmm , i think the easiest way is just check the literal distance between your character and the npc.. (no need for collider things) - cheaper though. - i think

Mir, would that drag the game if he is constantly checking distance?

Hi Mate

I would put a Sphere Trigger around you character, and run the Overlap on that.
