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"

My Particle Effect Is Not Showing an Emissive Glow

I am right now making a simple particle system involving orbs that flow upwards around the player gently and are supposed to glow and be emissive. I checked my blueprints and it all checks out, but for whatever reason in the world it's not glowing. My blueprint is below along with a crude screenshot of what it looks like in a dark environment:

what happens if you crank up those scalar constants from 7 and 10 to 700 and 1000? if nothing happens I would check your color modules in your particle system to see if their overriding the emissive value.

Hello Dylan,

If you'd like your particles to cast light on objects - try adding a light module.
