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 do I attach a cable to a socket?

Hi! I'm following a tutorial for a grappling hook, which involves making a cable on the character. The only issue I've had is that the cable just comes from the center of the character, rather than a specific point. In the third person level I tried attaching it to a socket on the right hand, but it's saying that it cannot change socket on inherited components. How do I make the origin of the cable come from the wrist of the character?

You want to attach the cable to the socket in Blueprints instead of in the component details panel. Simply get the Cable component, drag out and use the "AttachToComponent" node. Use the character mesh as the parent and the right hand socket name as the name. Also use SnapToTarget for the attach rules.

Be sure to mark this question as correct if I helped, thanks!
