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"

What are you disabling collision on? Is it the capsule component?

Yes, i'm disabling collision on the capsule component.

Try resetting the mesh to its starting location after turning ragdoll off:

It doesn't help, I can set any location to the mesh but it doesn't follow the root component anymore.

It wont help because the capsule has fallen through the floor because you are disabling collision on it....you can watch it fall if you enable show collision during play or simulate....once you disable collision on the capsule it will fall away. Try setting up a new collision profile to keep it from falling through the floor but allows other pawns/characters to pass/walk through it that way it doesn't fall away...then try setting the location and rotation

The capsule stays on the same position when ragdoll is enabled

Hmm...when I tested it disabling the collision made it fall through the floor....instead of using an all bodies below node try using a Set Simulate Physics and just connect the mesh to the target pin... I was able to set it back to the A-Pose and return it to normal position in the BP by using that

I tried that too. Mesh is returning to its pose but detaches from the character and not following it in the world anymore.

That's the point that I used the set relative location and rotation node to set it back at its starting point to match the capsule's

I know about that solution but it should be called from Tick event. Looks like that is only right option.

I noticed that animation blending also doesn't working after ragdoll.
