SideScroller Project - How did they constrain movement?
I'm fairly new to Unreal and have gone through a few tutorials and sample project creations. I'm digging through the SideScroller project and trying to figure out how they constrained movement to the y/z axis. I would have expected the Physics/Constraints/Lock Position check boxes to have been set, but they aren't. I added an input to move along the x axis and the character just turns to face the direction, but doesn't actually move. There is also no C++ code for this, so it can't have been done in code.
Does anyone know how this constraint was set?
I found it! With more searching I tracked down inside the SideScrollerCharacter's CharacterMovement inside a setting under "Planar Movement" called "Constrain to Plain".
This is hidden though from the main view in the main editor. If you are in the primary editor window and you select your character on the stage, the Details pane will show tons of settings. This section called "Planar Movement" does NOT show up here. I don't understand why.
To find it I opened the Side Scroller Character object itself, then under the Components tab I selected "Character Movement (Inherited)". Then in the Details panel here, near the bottom you can find "Planar Movement".
Any ideas why "Planar Movement" does not show up in the main editor's "Details" panel?
