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"

Jump/Launch any actor

Hello everyone,

I am working on a Blueprint which makes any actor (movable and with simulate physics turned on) launch (similar like player launch). I am not sure where I made a mistake. If I just slide over with the character it works but if I leave a box or any other actor on top of "location" the jump up/down acts crazy. Can you please help me out.

Kind regards

1 answer: sort voted first

because you are setting the location of a physics object.

even as the location is being shifted by your timeline, the physics are still pulling it down so it moves both up and down within the space of a tick.

to add a shunt of force, use "add impulse" (not add force)

otherwise, disable physics for the object until it leaves the overlap.
