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"

Flying image just like "Text Render" ?

Hello everyone :)

I'm looking for a way to display a flying image just like a Text Renderer is able to do with text. I don't want it to rotate so I cannot use Billboard, and It's not against a wall so I cannot use decal (unless I'm wrong somewhere). The image would be litteraly flying in my level.

The only way I see right now is by doing a flat mesh that has an UV map with the texture on it, but that sounds pretty overkill to me, I just need a place holder to put my image and scale it on 2 axis. The image would basically display some help for the player such as which key to press etc (tutorial).

Is there a way to do that really simply ? If not, what would be the best solution ?

Thanks ! :)

Can you import the image as a .png (drag and drop into your content in the editor) and create a sprite? That's what I usually do.
