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"

I'm doing this on the fly off the top of my head so there might be errors, but something like this:

 FTransform SocketTrans= MyActorB->GetMesh()->GetSocketTransform() * MyActorB->GetTransform().Inverse();
 MyActorB->AttachRootComponentTo(/*ActorA*/GetMesh(), "ActorASocket", EAttachLocation::SnapToTarget, true);
 FRotator DesiredLocalRotation(0.0f, 0.0f, 180.0f); // any initial rotation you want
 FVector NewOfs = DesiredLocalRotation.RotateVector(SocketTrans.GetLocation());

Note in your example you rotated 'B' 180 degrees, so I added that into my code, but it can be any rotation.
