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"

What's the best way to handle an outer corner when wallcrawling?

So I'm trying to make my character crawl around on a wall like Spiderman. He attaches to the wall correctly and can handle inner corners with no problem, since it's a simple rotation in place. Outer corners are another beast entirely since the character needs to move around the corner while rotating. I currently have a trace searching for where the wall ends, and from the end point it fires another trace to get the location and normal of the wall we are rotating to. (See attached screenshot) My first instinct is to create a spline between the two points at runtime, but there doesn't seem to be a way to rotate the spline points at runtime, giving it the proper curve to go around the corner without clipping through it. Are there any other methods I could use to make the character smoothly go around the corner?
