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 do I make a character glow with a super saiyan like aura?

I have a character that i'd like to make glow with an aura similar to the kind of thing you'd see in DBZ. I have a programming background so bear that in mind but what are my options here? A particle effect seems ok but I feel like i'd have to attach multiple particle systems to my character to get the desired effect.

You can attach a particle system component to your Character and spawn it whenever you require the aura to show, it all comes down to how to create a particle system like that.

I recommend you to take a look at the content examples and try to understand how particle systems work, it could get pretty complex depending on what you want but an aura shouldn't be that hard to achieve.

Edit: you don't require several particle systems, you can add as much layers as you want in your particle system to get this effect..
