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"

Proper way to handle bullet and magazines after eject

Is there a standard way to handle bullets and magazines that have been ejected?

For example... should a make a bullet an actor blueprint with projectile motion so i can spawn multiple when the gun is automatic?

And for magazines... how would i handle the ejected magazine.. i suppose most people just loop it back in so its reinserting the same magazine that they just ejected.. which i could handle that just by animating the bullet position in the clip by sliding them down i suppose when its ejected (if empty) and moving them back up before it comes back into view. but im setting up 3rd person/first person hybrid.. so.. no 2 arm rigs.. all the aiming and reloading will be visible to all clients.

so.. if i eject a mag... how and want it to sit on the ground for say 30 seconds before it despawns... how do i get a second magazine to spawn into the animation?

i dont really have to animate the bullet shells... they wont even really be there until the gun is ejected to thats fine.. but this magazine / clip thing has me stumped.
