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"

Preventing a character who's using physics from sliding down inclined surfaces

So I'm very new to using physics in Unreal so I'm sorry if this sounds a bit silly. What I'm trying to do is prevent my character (that's using physics (I'm about 90% sure he's using it to move)) from sliding down a ramp or other inclined plane.

I've done some fiddling around inside the character's blueprint and found that inside the capsule component under the physics section there's linear and angular damping I think have some effect but the character still slides.

I've also noticed that the character is using a physical material on the capsule collision, would that be to source of the issue?

I should also mention that I'm using a plugin by the user Mhousse1247 found here: https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?85022-Blueprint-C-Advanced-Templates-Tools-amp-Plugins

Hopefully the issue is not inside the plugin and I'll be able to get some help from you guys on answerhub.

Thanks for any and all help!

So I just discovered that the character is sliding because of the collision volume of the stairs (creating a ramp). Does physics have a weird interaction with collision volumes?
