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"

"Perfect" sphere collisions causing bouncing


We're currently working a multiplayer title in which the players take control of a ball by enacting physics upon it to move (torque and impulse work quite well!)

However, we've noticed that when moving on a flat plane, the balls will 'jump' automatically, seemingly at random. Suspecting a collision resolution issue with the static mesh we were using, we temporarily switched to a sphere collision component and ended up with the same results.

What are we doing wrong?

So I actually solved this myself, years later - Using BSP's for one reason or another causes physics inaccuracies; Switching to static meshes removed the bouncing entirely.

Also hello, strangers from google search results.
