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"

Stabilising mesh to create realistic handling


I'm trying to create a 6dof/Descent style of game and so my first step on this journey is to create the movement of the ship. I followed a tutorial on the UE4wiki and am pleased with the results however, to perfect this movement I need to figure out how to stabilise the craft while input is not pressed or the ship is not in motion

Basically, when I move left or right (WASD input) and move my mouseinput my mesh begins to tip, but does not go back to its original position when still. I want it to go back to an original position.

Basically, I want an effect similar to this but using proper physics: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cs8UXvNX8W8

Also, I only want this to be applicable when using the MoveRight input, as I have inputs that allow manual rotation of the ship.

I took a look at the Flying Template Blueprint but got lost pretty quickly, I am using Set Linear Physics Velocity to control the ship. I am unsure if the way this template handles it would be applicable to the way I've set up.

Here is what I currently have in Blueprints: http://gyazo.com/048a2b8c77f88b3b4d6c0004ecb34c14 Here is how my mouselook is setup(not using physics linear velocity): http://gyazo.com/0081c30f3119ab487838f64c1db172f8
