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 make a top down camera like the one in Pixel Ship?

I'm making a top down shmup and I'm trying to figure out how to make the camera always look down on the pawn while the pawn can move freely. I tried following Pixel Ship's setup, but I can't understand how they're doing it because the entire scene is set up within an actor class. I'm just using a custom GameMode and custom Pawn so I'm not sure how to go about it.

I just set the camera component's location and rotation to absolute. Not sure if this is the best solution but it works for now.
