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"

you can make an actor blueprint with a box collision component on it, and a particle system component on it. or in the event graph for said blueprint, you can spawn an emitter for the particle system

Hi thanks for your comment. I roughly understand what your saying, but some pics would really make it clear.

Sorry dont have time, but to get what i mean, drag the sparks particle system from starter content in your gaw, notice how they collide with everything. If you make an Actor blueprint, in te top left corner theres a green button that says add component. Add a collision box and a particle system to the blueprint. That should be all you have to do
