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 do i properly retrieve components from actors?

I have a trigger box with an overlap begin event and i want to add a upward impulse against gravity to my current player character which is (other actor), but i cannot connect this actor to the "add impulse" or "set linear velocity" :-(

I tried "get player controller" and "get player character" without any success... the impulse is fired, but nothing happens.

I think my general question is, how do i properly retrieve components from actors?? So that i can use the physic methods to do stuff or change the location whatever.

Hi finalspace,

You should be able to use a launch character node to provide what you are looking for.
