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"

Move object along a spline with an alpha(as in Lerp)

I need to move an object along a spline without using event tick so I came up with the idea to use timelines. How can I move an object along a spline with a timeline that uses new times based on the distance of the object from the player(like a boomerang). I know that was probably really confusing so ask if you have a question.

I think Timeline lets you input the time to start at (float param)

Not sure if I get it. A boomerang would start at the player's location, follow a spline and come back to the same location (a well thrown one, that is).

Setting New Time would mean that you do not want to use the entire length of the Spline or the entire length of the Timeline or both:

The way I have it set up is when the player throws the boomerang, it's a projectile with the projectile component but once it hits the ground or an object it comes back to the player.
