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"

Picking up objects with Vive Controller

For the last week or so I've been trying to create blueprints to pickup objects with vive controllers. I've been trying to use the Interactions with Motion Controllers videos with Wess Bunn but that hasn't worked, and this youtube video from Basement Games with motion controller button setups but that hasn't helped either.Could someone take a look at this setup I tried with the Interactions With Motion Controllers Video to see where I went wrong? The only thing I can do in the scene is walk around and wave my hands with the motion controllers, the movement system doesn't work and I cannot pickup anything from the scene including a mesh that I made using the blueprints from the video.

Take a look at your branch for detecting object overlap- It looks like you have it set to only detect an overlap if something is held in a hand, meaning nothing will ever be able to be held. You'll need to set that to false, rather than true.

I found adding debug feedback in places can be super helpful here. Printing to screen is obviously no longer viable, so force feedback, audio, or visual feedback for any triggers, such as overlap in this case, can help you narrow down the problem.
