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 use local space coordinates ?

I have a blueprint set up like in the picture below ...

alt text

... now, everything works but if i turn the blueprint a bit left or right it loses the 2 coordinates i gave it because those are in words space. Is there a way around this that you know ? Thank you for your time !!

Set Relative Location / Set World Location / Set Actor Location are three separate nodes:

I believe relative is local, World is world and actor location is world. I may be wrong but play around and you should figure them out pretty quickly.

But I would need a "get relative" node, not a set one, this is the full set up I needed to fix: alt text

I need a way to get the relative position of a component and then add to it

Then you can simple use a "Get Relative Location" (Highlight the root object of this BP first) and you'll be fine :)

To Main Actor A add two empty Actors B and C in that positions. B-s position will be A-s local position + vector(38,60,12) and C-s Position will be A-s local position + vector(38,15,12). Actor has default function getActorLocation and this returns global position of Actor. So add 2 public functions to A. 1) GetPositionOfB- this returns getActorlocation B 2) GetPositionOfC- this returns getActorLocation C

I found this solution to move an actor locally, using vectors (fordward, up..)
