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"

Attach actor to socket moves parent in a weird way

When I attach a static mesh actor to my player character (by using "snap to target") my actor gets kind of thrown backwards, as if the attachment would cause some impact on the character mesh.

I tried several things, please find below a quick setup with a level blueprint where I attach the static mesh to a socket on my player char:

Here is my static mesh that I use: alt text

Thank you for any hint!

Just as an update, I was able to fix the issue (thanks to reading a similar thread - should have looked better before posting this question :) ).

I unset the collision ("No Collision") in the attaching asset, then the player is no longer pushed around and able to move correctly!

Did you try to set "Weld simulated bodies" to TRUE at "attach actor to component" and deactiving the collision at the rifle?
