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"

Is "Attach Actor to Actor" broken (Socket)? 4.9


I use the "Attach Actor to Actor" node, but the socket pin does not work. With this I means, that the actor is attached to the other actor, but not to the right socket. It is simply attached to the origin of the second actor.

Is that an engine bug? Or do I have to do something special?

Thanks for your help.

Product Version: UE 4.9

I have found my error in reasoning. I have to use the "Attach Actor to Component" node, and use the mesh.

But thanks for your help.

If the pivots of your meshes are off this can happen and tghen you have to manually change the posiition of the socket to change this (you can move sockets FYI). Any modelling program other than MAya tends to create this issue.

Hope this helps Don't forget to accept an answer that best clears your question up or answers it so when the community finds your question in the future via search/google they know exactly what you did to fix it/get it going.
