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 Relative Location for actor

I have one actor that spawns other actor(s) as its child (body spawns hand for instance). Now I need to place that hand with relative location to body (which works), but when I am in blueprint of a hand, I cannot get relative location even though I can set it (and it works as it should/I expect it to). What am I doing wrong?

It just looks like there is no Get Relative Location node, but there is a Get Relative Transform, which has the information you need, you just need to break it down:

You could just create your own Get Relative Location Macro that outputs only the location to keep things tidy.

Thank you kindly, that is very helpful and I can't believe that I've missed that.
