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"

Activating another static mesh when a particle beam hits it.

So I have this little blueprint and particle beam setup that simply allows me to put in the source point and target point in the editor so that when I press "F" while in the trigger box the beam will show up and go between those two points. My question is, is there a way for me to set this up in such a way that, once I pair the particle beam to the static mesh actor I choose and rotate that static mesh actor so that the beam intersects another secondary static mesh actor I can then turn on that secondary actors particle beam. This way I'm only using a source and no technical target just a detection sequence that lets the actor know when the beam is hitting it. Below is a screenshot of my current blueprint. If you guys need anything else just let me know otherwise anyhelp is greatly appreciated.
