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"

This all depends on what method you are using to create your projectiles. Projectiles can be particles, physics actors, ray casts, etc. From what you are describing, you probably want to spawn an actor, give it the motion you desire, and use an On Hit Event or On Overlap event to simulate the Hit. Using an actor, you can set the collision to Block or Overlap depending on if you want to use Hit or Overlap. It may be helpful to look at the sample projects and at the Projectiles they are using.

Evan is right. You have to attach the FVX to an actor with a collider, not move the collider with part of the VFX.
