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 spawn randomly in sphere?

alt text

I did that like in endless course object spawning tutorial by unreal (this), but replacing box collision with sphere one. And SOMEHOW it didn't work :D Error is that box extent isn't compatible with sphere collision. What is other way to do that?

To get a random point within a sphere, use RandomUnitVector to get a random vector and the multiply it by RandomFloatInRange with Min=0.0 and Max equal to the radius of your sphere.

Oh, and add that to the world location of the spawn-sphere to get the spawn location in the world. I always forget that part...
