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 set parameter for particle material?

As you can see in the top two pics, I have a "Color" Parameter that changes the particle material. But the problem is on the last pic you can see I can do it just fine with my normal actor material, but I have no way of referencing the particle system itself? I have nothing to put on Target since its a particle!

that emitter will never get spawned the way you have it. it need to come before the destroy actor. the way it runs right now it should give you an error.

To answer your question just drag off the return value of the spawn emitter node. This will give you a reference to the particle system.
