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 swaying ropes with flags attached?


In my environment art project I am trying to create ropes with Tibetan prayer flags attached and have them sway in the wind. alt text

I have seen the swaying chain in the ParticleEffects example but I am not sure if using the "world position offset" would produce an adequate effect for both the rope and the flags. I also have beginner knowledge in using Apex cloth from Nvidia to simulate flags in wind, but in my experience the ropes would stay still.

So I am wondering what the best solution would be. It would be best if I can make some sort of spline system and have flags appear on it intermittently so I can iterate in engine quickly. But I primarily want to make the swaying of both components convincing.

Thanks for the help in advance.
