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"

Get Rotation of floor, adjust character rotation and speed

I want to be able to find the steepness of the slope the character is standing/walking on and adjust the character's rotation based off that value. Specifically I want the character to match the slope angle on slopes of 0°-30°, but return to vertical by 50°. Being able to adjust speed aswell (with more control than the "Maintain Horizontal Ground Velocity") would be even better. If possible could you post screenshots of the required blueprints, i'm new to UE4 and it would be a huge help! (PS, at the moment i'm working from pretty much the base 3rd person mode, if that's any help)

Use CurrentFloor of CharacterMovement component of your character there is a HitResult element in this structure and in HitResult there is an Impact Normal use that to determine the floor angle

Hello, I don't know if this is the best way to do this, but you can try setting up a hit event, then base your character movement/rotation and speed off of the values it returns.
