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 to make clouds move in trueSKY plugin for Unreal 4.15?

I am evaluating trueSKY with Unreal 4.15 in order to extract fly-thru camera paths for projection onto sculptures. I have successfully installed the plugin and can create the sky with clouds etc. However, the tutorial material available at Simul seems incorrect or unclear. The section on hooking up nodes in Blueprint for time passage and cloud movement are vague and the language used doesn't readily translate into the search function within Blueprint. In addition, the only video tutorial available seems dated. When Roderick addresses Blueprint there, he says to copy over a file called "trueSkyMacros.uasset" from this location: "UnrealEngine/Engine/Plugins/trueSkyplugin/Blueprint." However, I find no such file in any of the directories.

Is there a simple solution that I am missing here? Would really appreciate any sincere feedback. Thanks.

I just got started with TrueSky and took the following steps:

  1. add a 'TrueSkySequenceActor' to the scene

  2. create a new BluePrint class (call it f.e. 'TS_controller') in which I added two variables: a TrueSkySequenceActor reference and a 'CurrentTime' (float)

  3. placed this actor in the scene and selected the TrueSkyASequenceActor alt text

  4. Now you can manage the TS Sequence through the tick event of 'TS_controller', f.e. update the time: alt text

Hope this helps.
