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"

Drag and Drop In Game

Hi All, I need a help, a tip or something that could lead me to a solution.

I´m developing a game that I need to drag objects with mouse and put them in some positions inside the map. I am facing a issue on imagining a way to do this. How can I drag the objects inside the maps (actors like cubes and others geometrics) with mouse?

Please, help me! Any tip is very wellcome.

Thank you so much!!!

There is a node called "Get hit result under mouse" in your Controller BP. You can use this to check after a click if the object you clicked on is one you can move and then save it in a variable.

You can then on each tick get that location the same way and move the object you picked up there (probably putting the object a bit above the ground with a little bit of vector modification) and then when you want to put it down again just empty your variable and place the actor on the actual location.

Remember for the event tick move to check with a branch if your variable contains anything (via "IsValid").

I hope this helps.
