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"

4.8 control rotation changes automatically on moving objects

In 4.8 my camera (which is bound by control rotation of pawn) starts changing automatically when my pawn walks on certain objects like tilting platforms or rotating planes.

It looks like the control rotation is changing automatically despite me not setting it. This was not the case in 4.7 and earlier.

(It took me a while to figure this out so I'm posting the question and answer to this myself so others with the same issue can refer to it quickly)

In the 'Character Movement' component of your character set the property Ignore Base Rotation to true. From 4.8 onwards this property causes control rotation to be hijacked when your character walks on moving/rotating planes causing all kinds of unintended (in my case at least) side-effects.

Looking at the release notes I found this mentioned in the physics section as follows :

 Fix Characters using orient-to-movement or controller desired rotation not rotating along with a moving base.

Hope this helps.
