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"

My mesh particle has a spawn delay.

Hello! Sorry if this is a re-upload, it's been over a week without someone answering my other forum so I just want to be more specific this time. I have an ammo casing particle, and whenever it spawns it has about a 1 second delay. I've checked in every category and there is no spawn delay, warm-up time, or delay. This is happening with all my particle meshes and I don't know how to fix it. I've also noticed that when I put the spawn rate up, it spawns immediately without a delay! However, spawn rate causing a lot of the mesh particles to come out, and I only want one to come out with no delay.

The Reason This Delay is Bad.:

  1. It causes my ammo casing (ammo ejects) to have a delay, so if someone is shooting the gun and rotating, the particles don't keep up with them.

  2. The delay stands out, and even when not moving it looks bad.

Thank you! I hope you guys can reach out! I am so sorry for a re-upload basically, but I am just really curious for an answer.

Are you setting your emitter up to use Burst instead of frequency based spawning?
