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"

Only having 1 instance of actor in level

Hey everyone!

I am making a portal system, the same premise as the game Portal and I would like to know how to only have one instance of (for example) 'Portal1' in the level at one time. As of right now whenever i spawn a new portal it does not override the previous. If anyone has any suggestions on how to do this that would be great :)

Thanks and much appreciated, Harry

You could store a reference to each of your open portals somewhere (in the player, or the gamestate probably). When a new portal is successfully created call destroy on the stored reference, then replace it with that of the new portal.
