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 physically drag a player to location rather than teleport?


This may be an unusual concept to ask about, not sure, but:

Im making a sci fi space sim game which is first person and takes place on a spaceship. I want to make it so that if theres some form of impact that it'd tear a hole in the ship. Making the mechanics upto that point is fine, im also able to create a triggerbox when that happens to reset the levels gravity. However i want to be able to have it so that if theres a hole in the ship the space will try sucking the player out of the ship. So question is how to i drag a player to a certain locaion rather than simply teleporting?

Thanks, Matt

Hey TheGoldstrum-

You can use a timeline to drive a linear interpolation (LERP) to smoothly update the position of the character from pointA to pointB over the course of the timeline. This will allow the character to appear to move to the new location rather than teleporting there.
