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 from actor to other actor

I'm sure this is going to be simple for most of you but my rotation math isn't quite where it should be yet. I have a AI-controlled UFO that is going to be shooting lasers (actor with projectile component) and I'd like it to aim at the player. I don't need to rotate the AI UFO - I just want lasers to spawn with the correct rotation.

I'm currently determining visibility with a multi line trace that draws the perfect trajectory of my bullet but I can't seem to extract the rotation for my projectile from the hit result.

Thanks so much for the help in advance!!

I may have jumped the gun the gun. I didn't know there was the magical node: "Find Look at Rotation". Here is my fire lasers function that automatically shoots at player[0] :)
