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"

Cannot rotate Pawn with WheeledVehicleMovementComponent

I am trying to rotate a vehicle pawn based on the Advanced vehicle template, but the pawn ignores all SetRotation attempts. The pawn is using WheeledVehicleMovementComponent. On pawns from other templates that use different type of movement component the rotation works.

What I've tried

On actor:

  • SetActorRotation()

  • AddActorLocalRotation()

  • AddActorWorldRotation()

  • SetActorLocationAndRotation()

  • SetActorRelativeRotation()

On Mesh component:

(Mesh is the RootComponent and UpdatedComponent of WheeledVehicleMovementComponent)

  • AddLocalRotation()

  • AddRelativeRotation()

  • SetRelativeLocationAndRotation()

  • SetRelativeRotation()

  • SetWorldLocationAndRotation()

  • SetWorldRotation()

In Controller:

Turned on useControllerRotationPitch/Yaw/Roll in Pawn.

  • SetControlRotation()

Is this a bug or limitation of WheeledVehicleMovementComponent?

Hey Frozz-

This is a known issue that has been previously reported. You can find more information in this discussion as well as a workaround that should help:


Though the post mentions SetActorLocation() you should be able to use the information for SetActorRotation() as well.
