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"

Controlling Particle Position from Blueprints

My need is to spawn a large number of particles at known locations in space. Before the emitter starts, I have an array of vectors for the location of each particle. Like a point cloud. I want to be able to both set the initial location of each individual particle, as well as control it's movement.

My latest attempt was to create my own particle module in C++ deriving from UParticleModuleLocationBase. This would work, except for the linking error because the base class is MinimalAPI. When I attempt to compile, I'll get unresolved symbols in UParticleModule. Looking at other solutions to similar issues, a solution seems to be to modify the engine code and recompile the engine from source. If there is another more elegant solution, I'd prefer that.

Any suggestions for tackling this problem?
