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"

How would I recreate Elite Dangerous' speed lines?

Hi everyone! I'm trying to make my very own space-sim game in Unreal Engine 4 and I just don't know how to produce the speed lines ("space dust thingies") in the Engine. I don't really know the engine well (and have no money to spend on the marketplace), so can anyone point me in the right direction so I can un-stuck myself?

The effect I'm trying to make is best described with an image : Speed Lines


Product Version: UE 4.22

This is a neat effect but not the one I'm looking for : it needs to show speed AND direction! Or there's a way to "rotate" the effect as if it's from another direction? Mmhh...
