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 can I rotate an actors pivot point?

I would like to alter the existing pivot point of an actor, specifically the orientation of that pivot point. If the actors X axis (forward) is inline with the worlds, but I want to rotate it so that the x axis of this actor is now 45 degrees to the left (between where X was pointing and where Y was pointing), how would I got about doing this in code?

You should just use something like this:

 // Apply the pivot offset    
 FTransform newTransform = GetTransform();
 newTransform.ConcatenateRotation(MyPivotOffset);

 // Apply the rotation you want
 newTransform.ConcatenateRotation(MyRotation);
 newTransform.NormalizeRotation();
 SetActorTransform(newTransform);
