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 You Create A Force Field Cone of Light That Is Projected From Character (Side Scroller)?

I am just unsure of the logic or setup to place a FORCE FIELD from the MyCharacter.

I have a 2d side scroller and already can aim the mouse any where on screen and shoot projectiles, etc. So this part works, but I am curious on the logic/setup need to have MyCharacter project a "Forcefield-like Cone" of light which would look like an umbrella to block rocks from falling on him?

Note: I have 360 aiming for the side scroller, shooting, and all that, I am just unsure of the logic or setup to place a FORCE FIELD from the MyCharacter and project it forward? Do I use a sphere, custom 3d model, etc?

Just curious how you would do this... thank you.

It seems I can use Cone (Volume) and use this like a shield to aim around my character.
