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"

SetActorLocation Sweep Causes Teleporting

I am attempting to set up a tank's canon rotation. It should rotate 360 degrees, unless collision occurs. I am using a sweep on SetActorLocation for collision. However, when it rotates to certain values during collision it'll slide to a new location. How can I keep it in place at collision instead of warping to a new spot? It seems to estimate to the nearest non-colliding point?

Here's a video to demonstrate my problem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UujoGu73Xq8 Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!

alt text Also here's the rotation in the blueprint. Just translating the mouse world coordinates. It appears Unreal Engine's collision system is displacing it; not my own calculations...

Found the solution for anyone experiencing this.. I am using the platformer template. When the character is in falling state this will occur. Disabling fall wont cause the teleporting. It is inherited from Unreal Engine's collision properties.
