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"

Racing game position ranking?


I am trying to figure out a way to rank the player and the AI racers to find out who wins each race and which position they come in. My first thought was to use a spline and find the player and AI location on the spline, but I'm not sure how to:

1) Get the locations along the spline and 2) How to compare the location of 4 pawns to each other (with 3 possible player pawns)

How would I go about figuring out where each player is on the spline, compare it to the AI vehicles and then rank each vehicle on the HUD?

Thank you.

Hey, I know this is late but just in case anyone else is still looking for a way to do this still:

You can create a system where it'll create player race positioning based on actual world position and then just deduct those coordinates from the finish-line world position and then its a matter of setting up a few checks Using "value < greater" Or "Less> Value" that determines the players position. Now this may get weird if the level is windy or overlaps itself (you'd have to account for these things and make the system more complex that what I had initially explained)

Example - 3 opponents begin on same start line, they all have the same finish line, the distance between the finish-line and the start line IS what determines the players position
