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"

Random float breaks function


So i have these two blueprints, one where the bullet created moves directly towards the cursor, and a second one where the bullet direction should be a bit more random. I have tried to achieve the random direction by breaking the rotation, adding a random number to the x, y and z axis. However, this has stopped the bullets from spawning. So my question is if there is anything in my blueprint that is faulty?

Note: This is a top-down game, if that effects anything.

I see that your scale is set to 0, 0, 0 in both of your blueprints - could you try setting it to 1, 1, 1 instead? They may be spawning so small that they're invisible.

Apart from that, the only thing I can think of is that they are spawning, but are flying off in a random direction before you can see them. It's a long shot, but video games can be strange sometimes :P

Finally, try dragging off of the return pin of the spawn actor node and checking it - you should be able to see if your projectile exists and where it is there.
