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"

Particles don't show if player is too close

I created a particle emitter to make rain and it works fine if I place it on scene. But if the player goes near they dissapear. I want this particle emitter following the player, and sure i place it on the blueprint and link it to the camera, but it only works if i place the emiitter at some distance, if i place it above the camera as intended they dissapear.

Thnak you very much. I am still a noob and pluralsight tuts have take me so far. I fixed the bounds but didnt realize that you could customize them after restart.

I am fairly new to all this. I can't seem to solve this issue.

I'm having the same problem - get within 1 metre of the particle system and it disappears. I've tried setting the bounds to be tiny (-0.01 to 0.01) and ridiculous (-20,000 to 20,000) and in every case, the system is visible until the player gets within 1 metre of it, at which point it vanishes.

What am I missing?

You are missing the fact that you are not properly reading and paying attention :p

I rebooted unreal every time I made a change, still no difference. I found another way around the problem by using something else instead of a particle system, but I'd still like to see if I can figure this out - I'm sure it will come up again.

hmm only thing i can think of then is accidentally inverted min/max bounds, or accidentally created a particle LOD with nothing in it.
