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"

Particle damage

alt textI have a flamethrower particle, and I want that particle to damage when the player overlap. I google it, a lot looking for particle damage, but the effort was for nothing.

Yup, particles are not designed to do that. They are designed to be as cheap as possible. To achieve the behaviour that you want they would need to hold a ton of extra information that would just cause overhead and hit the performance of the game. Also in the link to the forum posted below they say that particles are processed by the GPU and all the gameplay logic runs in the CPU, so there's no way for them to communicate. The way to achieve the effect that you want is spawning projectiles that behave like those particles. The particles should be driven by your game logic, not the other way around.
