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 Fix MY Rotation

My Aritst made a wonderful model,


When Import it into the engine, it's not facing the right direction.

So in code...

     //Create the static mheh
     HoverCar = CreateDefaultSubobject<UStaticMeshComponent>(TEXT("HoverCar"));
     RootComponent = HoverCar;
     //Attatch the mesh to our RootComponent
     //Find the mesh that Chris made (Nice job Chris)
     static ConstructorHelpers::FObjectFinder<UStaticMesh> HoverCarVisualAsset(TEXT("/Game/Models/HoverCar/Tank_Plate.Tank_Plate"));
     //If the engine does find out static mesh called "Tank_Plate" in the directory..
     if (HoverCarVisualAsset.Succeeded())
         //Set our UStaticMeshComponent called HoverCar to the object fount
         HoverCar->SetRelativeLocation(FVector(0.0f, 0.0f, -40.0f));
         //Fix the artist rotation - bug?
         //FVector fixCarRot = FVector(0.0f, -90.0f, 0.0f);
         //FQuat myQuat = FQuat(0.0f, 0.0f, 180.0f, 0.0f);
         //FRotator myRot = FRotator(-90.0f, -90.0f, -90.0f);

This is in the Constuctor....I add the staticmesh.

This is the result...

So my camera is looking at Pawn in the right way.

THIS IS AN EASY Fix in Blue print, but no in c++.

I need to rotate my Static Mesh so it is facing the green direction.

My S.Mesh is the Root component btw.
