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"

Make particles flow towards specific points

I've been trying to make a particle emitter that spends out particles moving towards a specific point set in world space, specified by a parameter that i can communicate with in blueprints. I from what i could find, It looks like i have to use an Attractor, based off of this. When i right click the Point attractor (or any of the attractor options), theres no option "set up particle parameter" option like there is for Scale Color / Life.

Am i missing something or is this simply not possible the way im trying it? Heres what i'm looking at alt text

This was the tutorial i tried to follow earlier. I could not get the point attractor parameter to communicate with any BP. It cant be made into a parameter like Scale Color (as used in the Epic provided tutorial), and set vector parameter doesn't seem to communicate to the particle. Any ideas?
