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"

The problem is, this happens: https://youtu.be/myzWT9ZyLe4 . The one I placed manually falls on the floor as expected, but the others just kinda keep floating around! And it's not that they stand on an invisible platform: you can see that they are all at different heights!

What could be the culprit here?

Hey akiiino,

What you are seeing is because there is no Controller set to the "MyBotCharacter" being spawned. To fix this, open your MyBotCharacter Blueprint and in the "Pawn" section, change "Auto Possess AI" to "Placed in World or Spawned".

As such:
