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 do you attach one mesh to another in Blueprint?

I know questions like this have been asked before. And so far, I've found no way that works.

I'd like to attach the above skeletal ship mesh - which is properly physically set up, collision and yada yada - to the octagon below it. The octahedron? octagon? is being constrained in the z-axis at the moment as it just stops balloon flight from happening till I get intelligent thruster compensation going.

The thrusters and stuff all fly and fire as required:

But as you can see, the ship is not attached, nor is it parenting in any way. It acts like a physics object should, and is pushed up by the platform below it. Is there a specific method I need to use to parent the ship's location to the platform below it? I can't figure it out.
