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"

Hi mojachiee,

If you follow this Unreal Engine 4 tutorial, and then make this addition to the ForLoop Body which spawns the Object.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4W8xEXMiClU

The Line Trace is 255 units of the Actor Up Vector Inverse added to the Actor's location, resulting in a Trace starting from the Actor ending 255 units below the Actor. Hit result returns normal hit which I pull the rotation from and set it to the Actor. Offsetting rotation may be necessary.

Hope this helps!

what are they two nodes in the far left hand corner?

They're the nodes from the tutorial generating random numbers. Its the same as the tutorial, nothing different.
