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 make my emitter rotation change according to the surface it spawns on?

Hey guys.

I am currently trying to make a spell that bursts from the surface of where i aim. So far i have managed to make it spawn wherever i aim using line tracing but it doesnt take into account what kind of surface it hits. This means that whenever i shoot the floor it works just fine and the emitter is orientated correctly but should i shoot a wall the emitter doesnt line up (see picture).

any ideas of how i can implement orientation of the spawn location so that my emitter lines up correctly? alt text

Ok a little update i now know it has something to do with the emitter itself and not how i use line tracing.

Its currently locked to the Z axis so that the circle is always orientated the way you see in the picture. Problem is that should i unlock it it will always face the camera which is not the intention either.
