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"

Editing Sockets at runtime

Hey, is there any way to edit Socket's relative location and rotation? There's no way through Blueprints and any socket I get through C++ is const and can't be edited (at least it's always throwing a compiler error when I try to change any member). I wonder if that's just meant to be that way for safety or something? Or is the accepted convention that people just add another bone to the skeleton?

Hi Schlechtwetterfront,

You can change socket only in editor. However, when you attach actor Actor to Actor you can specify attach location type. For example, keep Relative Offset. In this case attached actor location and rotation will be relative socket.

Hope it helps!

Not really sure but you can always use the value that the socket would be located at theoretically for attaching, spawning or checking for collisions in the same fashion.
