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 enable free movement like PIE controls?

Hi folks. My goal is to have my character move in the game world exactly like the default PIE movement controls. I would say "flying" but actually the FPS controls are closer. But I want forward and back strafing inputs to be constrained to where the reticle/mouse is pointing - not simply constrained to the X/Y plane.

I'm using the Shooter template to get my basic FPS controls which is everything I want. It's not good to switch to flying mode since the FPS controls are almost there. Is there a box to uncheck somewhere I'm missing so forward and back move according to X,Y, AND Z - or SHOULD I just make it a flying character and change more of those settings? (That seems like longer work since the default flying controls are farther from what I want.)

And yes, I did search and found a similar question from a year ago, but it wasn't answered effectively. Thanks all!

The answer is to attach a Floating Pawn Movement component to your pawn or default pawn class. :)
