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 to create vapor trail from wing edge?

Hey guys, new to the whole game making thing in UE4.

How would i go about making a vapor trail for my jet fighter? I've messed about for quite some while in Cascade and nothing looks right at all.

Thanks in advance!

This doesn't seem to solve my issue as the ribbons doesn't align and they spin freely. Anyone else got some input on my issue?

Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure what kind of alignment issue you are having but they shouldnt be spinning freely if you use Spawn Per Unit module. They will spawn as the object they are attached to moves and keep their spawn location. I had done the same thing in this video after 1.25: https://youtu.be/vp56o7ArgUU?t=1m25s

You'll need to do some tests since not every ribbon system fits all purposes but i can send you this ribbon particle if you like. It was based on the ribbon sample in Content Examples project, btw.

If you could send me the one you're using it would be a gift from above! Since i'm very new to making games i can comprehend everything in Cascade but i've gotten closer now to what i want but it's a far stretch from what i want and what you have is what i'm exactly after. Could you please?

Best regards, Florian

Here it is: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jx3gtuqb7cv2pfx/RibbonSample.rar?dl=0

Just copy whatever is inside the Content folder directly to your project's Content folder. But as i said, it wont work as expected right away due to size and speed difference so you'll have to do some tweaking.
