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"

Enabling physic simulation on spawned actors to separate them

I'm trying to spawn a numbers of actors, whose only component is a root BoxCollision component with physic simulation initially disabled, and using the physic engine to separate them activating their simulation simultaneously.

The effect I was trying to obtain was this:
Drifting actors

Instead, I'm getting steady, "vibrating on their place" actors:

The physic settings of the box are the following:

The constraint are to lock the rotations and to keep the bodies in the same plane; I know that I should also set a higher linear damping to block their drifting, but at this moment changing it does nothing.

Am I missing something? Or is the engine not capable of such behaviour?
