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"

Switching between Camera Pawn and Pawn--want Pawn to only have Yaw movement

Hi Everyone,

I'm relatively knew to Unreal and I have done a few tutorials (about half a year of self teaching), and I desperately need more help from a community that has helped me so much already. For my game, I set up a nice moving camera pawn that only is affected by the level boundary and another pawn with a camera in the level that I am able to switch to by pressing tab.Level



My issue, however, comes from when I switch to the pawn view (see image 3). Overall, I want to be able to move the pawn camera's yaw position and shoot projectiles from the pawn, but I can't seem to get it to work. I don't want it to have the same movement as my camera pawn, but remain stationary like a turrent, following my mouse's X movement. CameraswitchandPawncontrol

In the blueprints above, the lightsource_BP is the pawn I am referencing. In conclusion, I imagine the solution is pretty simple, but since I am still a novice, I have run out of ideas. Thank you very much in advance.
