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 cast a ray to any direction?

Hi. I want to cast a ray from one point to a random direction up/down/left/right, just any direction. Can anyone tell me the solution? I can't put my head around to how to do it. Thanks

Use the Random unit vector node and multiply it by a float value, this float value is the distance of the trace. Add that to your actors location to get the trace end point.
