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"

Apply damage types to line traces

I'm creating a FPS game where the player will use a gun as well as use super powers. I'm using line tracing for both. How can I make the AI tell the difference between a gun shot line trace and a Ice beam line trace?

the simple answer is you dont. a line trace is a tool to show hit results it doesnt actually apply damage so where you set the damage source or type will be elseware in your script. that said i cant really give you a definitive "heres how to do it" answer without seeing your script and how it functions.
