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"

Bug with friction when using materials

Here is a video where I recreate the bug: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-_QoM1TokY

My character model is a sphere, and I'm attempting to give it 0 friction, so I can slide on the ground.

If I set a physical material as having 0 friction and also set it on my character, so there shouldn't be any friction, it still sometimes applies it.

As you can see, I am able to glide around for a moment, but then the friction kicks in and I start to roll.

I'm running into the exact same problem using a pawn.h derived 'character'. I have yet to find a way to disable friction on the capsule.

This is where you set up friction and damping, they could be overriding yours. (Blueprint based off of pawn).

Those are for walking movement, right? My player is a SphereComponent, and I don't have CharacterMovement there.
