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"

How to configure a homing projectile?

I'm trying to turn a projectile into a homing projectile at runtime in a function.

What parameters need to be filled in order for an actor with a Projectile component to home in on a target?

I've done the following:

  1. Assign a default non-zero homing acceleration magnitude.

  2. Set "Is Homing Project" to true at run-time.

  3. Assign a homing target at run-time.

I tried reading another question from the answer hub, but I don't think I'm missing anything from it.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

It turns out that there wasn't a problem at all! Its existing velocity was simply too great to overcome, so I reset the velocity back to 0,0,0 before setting "Is Homing Projectile" to true and then it propelled itself to its target as it would normally.
