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 to modify my object pickup mechanics so that object pickup is situated around crosshairs?

Hey all,

I'm working on a first person game that'll feature object pickup mechanics. Which works fine!

i followed the tutorial below if you want to see how i approached making the mechanic:


What i don't like with what i have currently is i can pick the object up just fine, but the focal point of the object pickup seems to make it appears that the object is hanging below the players camera, especially when picking up objects at close range, an example of this can be seen in the screenshot below:

as you can see above, the cube is almost out of the player's view. Below is a screnshot of when i pickup the cube at distance:

As you can see above, when picked up at a distanced the object pickup focuses alot more around the crosshairs/centre of the screen. I want this to happen by default, what can i do to achieve this? as i feel the object hanging almost of the scren can sometimes be unsightly.

Thanks :) Matt
