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 can i mantain my object scale when i attach it to a socket?

Hello, i have the MuzzleFlash socket in my rifle with scale 1.0, 1.0, 1.0 and i have an object that i want to attach to it that has scale 0.3, 0.3, 0.3. When i use ObjectToAttach->AttachRootComponentTo(WeaponMesh, "MuzzleFlash", EAttachLocation::SnapToTarget) the Object resets it's scale to the Socket Scale. how can i prevent him from doing that?

Worked for me. Took me a minute or two before I started looking at the root component rather than the actor for bAbsoluteScale.
