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"

Friction of car wheels depends more on tire-grips and ground surface. This friction is in turn helps your car to stop when applying break. If want to regulate the friction on runtime, I don’t think it is possible anyhow. However if you get able to maintain those two factors, then perhaps it could be possible for you.

Hello Hevedy,

From what I've looked into, it doesn't seem like changing the friction value at runtime is possible natively in blueprints. The friction property itself is marked as a private variable in C++ and therefore isn't accessible outside of the class. It most likely is to protect it from being changed at runtime as it may cause issues related to PhysX.
