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"

Move center of mass in blueprints?

I'm curious if its possible to move the center of mass in a blueprint node. I have the mass lowered to keep a bike upright ( in the static mesh component) but when its jumping I wish to move it back to the center of the object. Any information is welcomed, Thanks!

Hey Bradley,

If you are using the WheeledVehicle as your base blueprint class (parent) you can go into the Defaults section of the blueprint and adjust the COM offset on the Z Axis in the Vehicle Setup section shown here:

Hope that helps!

EDIT: just noticed you said Node not blueprint sorry... I don't know of any way to do this currently from blueprints, it is possible in code though.

Hey thanks for the quick reply! Yeah unfortunately I'm staying away from the wheeled vehicle set as it doesn't support two wheeled vehicles so I'm kind of in the wild west hacking things together in blueprints haha.

This appears to be true up to 4.5.1, but is absent from subsequent versions. Has it been moved or removed?

Ahh, found it! Under the Physics group in the vehicle's mesh details.
