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"

Orienting a sprite to a particle's velocity vector in cascade

Hi, is there a simple way to orient a sprite texture to the particle's velocity vector? As the particle moves down the cards here would flip direction. Much thanks!

Yes, this is very simple to do, inside your particle system -> click the required module, and in the details panel under Emitter there is a setting called "Screen Alignment", set that to PSA Velocity.

Hope that helps! :)
