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 can I have particle face Normal direction upon Hit?

Hey all!

I have a particle effect which consists of a flat image. It's a splat that occurs when a tomato (actor blueprint) hits the wall. The player is in a room with four walls. I want the player to be able to throw the tomato at any wall and have the particle face the right direction. Unfortunately, what happens now is this:

As you can see, the particle is constantly oriented in one direction. The objective is to have the particles face the direction of the wall they hit (if that makes sense).

I have Locked Axis turned on, because otherwise the particles will constantly face the camera direction. I've heard about turning on PSA Velocity, but that makes my particles invisible...

Please help me out here! :)
