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 I correctly attach a actor to my character?

alt textHi, I have set up a series of scripting. I have multiple interactions and one is when you look at a knife, you press E to pick it up. I have everything down but when It gets attached to the characters hand. I have added a socket to my skeleton and it even disappears when I press E! I know I am very close cause of this. What am I doing wrong?

First try Snap to Target, Keep World Scale for Attach Type. If it doesnt work try this instead of attaching the actor in the level:

  • After cast destroy the actor(weapon.)

  • Add Child Actor Component > select your weapon BP in the properties > Attach that to the socket.

Good! :) Please dont bump your questions so quickly next time though. There are hundreds of people asking questions everyday and everyone's question has equal urgency. Give it 2-3 days and you should get an answer eventually, if not feel free to bump on the fourth day.
