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"

I did not get an error when connecting the "make array" but it did not work. And what should I choose on the drop list of "make array"

It depends what your object is. If you go to the object you want to destroy collision settings, you should see "Object Type". That object type is what you should choose on the drop list. For example, if the object you wish to destroy is an object type of "World Static", your make array drop down should be "World Static"
