One of the many challanges

Technical challenge

One of the challenges I had was the following:

For me this was the very first time I worked with the Unreal Engine, I had to learn a lot of new things for that.
I had to try and figure out how to make the sparks fly of the motorbike when it collides with other objects.

The solution

At first came up with the solution of implementing hit boxes on either side of the motorbike. Only this gave the problem that the particles would disappear after some time when the collision is not registerd anymore.

To fix this I sought out different solutions and came up with implementing a raycast on the motrbite. From one side, to the other. Then when this raycast collided with objects like walls, it would play the plarticles at the point of collision.
