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"

Drawing outline from radius onto world terrain


I am currently working on a level where I have a Thumper with a radius of which I can change, whenever the player is inside this they are briefly stunned if moving on the ground.

My problem right now is that I would like to make the affected radius (circle) clearly visible to the player so they know where the boundaries are of the Thumper.

Now, I have been thinking of different ways of doing this but am not familiar with making such things in Unreal, therefore I am wondering if there is any way to draw the outline of the cylinder (shown in the picture) or taking the current radius value and draw a clearly visible line on this which also is affected by the world geometry.

I would also love to know if you can draw a fade out from the Thumper out to the edge where the line is to make it even more visible :)

Thanks to anyone who can help!alt text

You should consider using decals for that.
