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"

Define Global Vector Field in C++ Code

By following the official tutorial documentation on Particle Systems I see that Vector Field Volume Actors have a Vector Field attached to them and the field of vectors is defined from an ASCII file which you load in at compile time. I would like to specify a dynamic vector field to be defined programmatically using something like a std::vector for example through a Tick() operation at runtime.

I theorise also that I should be able to extend some VectorField class and attach an instance to my Vector Field Volume and in this extended class I can define the vector field builder code I want.

Does anyone know whether what I am proposing is possible?
