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"

How to disable friction to a pawn?

Hi all! I've trying to create a hovership pawn with blueprints that is only a pawn with a physics enabled mesh. I control it by applying forces, no character movement is used.

I want to make it frictionless for gameplay purposes. I've noticed that I can only achieve that by set friction 0 for both hovership and the ground. I don't wanto to change ground's friction because it would affect other physical objects. In Unity I can set friction combine to get the mininum friction value instead of average between both. Is there something similar? Is there some other way to disable friction only on my pawn?

Thanks!

Epic devs have now implemented friction combine on physics materials. There wasn't at the time.

I set the Friction Combine Mode to "Min" and set my friction to zero, and that got rid of friction completely. :)

Use physics materials. See documentation.
