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"

Attaching Emitter To Follow Character

So I'm attempting to attach an emitter to a socket on my skeletal mesh, however the problem is, the mesh data emitters aren't following the character mesh when it's in motion. They spawn, stick to the location they first spawned in, despawn (end of their life) and respawn again in a similar fashion. I'm just looking to attach two rotating orbs around the character that moves with it as it moves.

You can use SpawnEmitterAttached node as below to make emitter attached to your character mesh. You can even subtract a vector quantity to make the emitter appear a little behind character.

Attach point Name is the socket that I have created in character mesh. At this socket, emitter will be spawned.

Whoop, found the answer. Wasn't a blueprint problem after all, but an emitter problem. Didn't tick "Use Local Space."

This is the problem I had. Easy solution, just hard to figure out!
