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"

Problem with SetWorldRotation

I've got a cube as custom pawn, where I implemented a rotation with simultaneous movement. The cube can only move in one of four directions at a time, the appropriate rotation is determined in a switch statement. So far everything worked fine, but I didn't want to reset the rotation after each step so instead I save the cube's world rotation now and add the appropriate values. The problem is, that the cube seems to be rotating in local space instead of world space, although I'm using SetWorldRotation. This is the code where I save the rotation before each movement:

 OriginalRotation = Cube->GetComponentRotation();

It says it returns the rotation in world space.

And here is where I change the rotation:

 Cube->SetWorldRotation(OriginalRotation + FRotator(Pitch, 0, Roll));

The values for pitch and roll are determined before that, either Pitch or Roll is always 0.0 in the particular movement. Still, after the cube rotated 90 degrees in either direction, the next movement shows a totally wrong rotation. Did I interpret the return values wrong or what's the problem here?

Edit: If I use AddWorldRotation it apparently rotates in the direction that I want, but want to be able to set the direction, if that's possible.
