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"

How would I create a ring of cloud?

Hello. This is my first question and I am very new to UE4. I am trying to create a galaxy for an immersive game environment that is basically made up of "rings" of gas clouds and asteroids like the picture found here . Does anyone have any idea how I could create an emitter in the shape of a ring and emit a cloud (not worried so much about the material because I have that worked out) as well as other particles to mimic what's happening in the image? Any help would be great. I've watched a lot of tutorials but nothing gives me what I'm after. Thank you in advance!

Product Version: UE 4.11

massive "fog" nebulae are really.. REALLY expensive. You might want to be sure to lod it into a masked instead of opacityversion of the shader. If its an actual ring, either make it out of 1-4 meshes (waaaaay more optimal) or let it emit sprites with the cylinder location module. (surface only, disable Z+ and Z-)
