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 PUSH/PULL an object in 3rd person ?

I need help making an object than can be pushed and/or pulled in a 3rd person view since I'm currently working on a small project that involves a character pulling and pushing objects to get to places in a 3rd person view ...

Examples of games that kind of do this : LIMBO ( but in 3D/3rd person ) , Uncharted 4 ( pulling crates/boxes ) and many others but these show a decent example of what I need .

Hopefully someone can help me with this !

Well thats interesting but for a 3rd person game it would be awful , I need something like the character goes near the object , press a certain key "E" and once the played presses the letter "E" the character does a pose as in pushing and then the player can walk forward with "W" and then reach the desination , release the object by pressing "E" again and the character goes back to thr normal IDLE pose , then he can climb the object and things like that ... but all I need is a PULL/PUSH blueprint for my 3rd person character .

Still , thanks for the reply ! this could definately be useful for a First Person game :)
