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"

Spawning map similar to Dispicable Me: Minion Rush

Hi, I'm trying to make a game similar to Subway Surface and Minion Rush. I already followed the Endless Run Tutorial and made something 30% similar to Subway Surfers. And the curved world too.(Using *World Position Offset) alt text

I used Get forward vector and add movement input to move my character in a straight line. The way I'm switching tracks is by using a timeline, lerp vector and set relative location. alt text

But I want to add non straight tracks, like in Minion Rush. alt text

Making non straight tracks and spawning them is easy. But switching tracks and running along track is something that I can't understand, And how do I can make the character follow the tracks like above? I already tried Spline but, because of I'm doing a spawning, I can't make the character to follow the path using Spline which is in a blueprint. Here's what I tried. alt text I made 3 Spline paths and tried to move my character along one of them. What I did is casting to that blueprint when character overlap with it and using Spline data to move it. Well, the first overlap worked. I used Cast to Floor, but the spawned Floors are Floor, Floor1, Floor2, Floor3.... It isn't working after the first cast. I think the best way to do this is not using Splines. So is there any way to do this? If you have any idea to work this around, please help.

Well, I think they used some kind of dynamically spawned spline for whole track, and move character along that spline all time.

Switching between tracks is just a offset.
