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"

Allow projectile rotation (with friction)

Hi all,

I believe this question is probably extremely simple... But I still cannot find the answer. I'm not an extremely experienced UE4 programmer, so please be patient... :)

Using the first person shooter template, I created a custom projectile with a different mesh on it (as you see, extremely simple!). But the problem is that with the new mesh I clearly see now that when shooting the "balls" they do not rotate while bouncing (even if I add angular dragging).

How would you allow this projectiles to (realistically) rotate when bouncing/colliding? I assumed this should be included within the physics simulation... So I guess the fact of using the "FirstPersonProjectile" blueprint is the problem...

Any idea?
