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"

Create a Sphere Component, Capsule Component, or whatever component fits your needs. You can use this for collision. Next, add the Static Mesh Component for the characters mesh, and attach it to the collision component. Lastly, add a Rotating Movement Component. In blueprints, use the "SetUpdatedComponent" function and connect the Static Mesh to the "New Updated Component" pin to tell the Rotating Movement Component to just rotate the mesh. Make sure the StaticMeshComponent doesn't have collision turned on, since you'll be using the collision component for the Pawns Collision.

Good luck! :)
