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 Do I Stop Moving Through Walls?

My current VR Pawn is able to move around/jump, but it'll also run through walls and fall through the floor. I've added capsule collision as a component of the pawn, tweaked settings on the collision, messed with other stuff (all reverted now) and nothing works. Am I missing something very simple here?

Sounds like you need to enable collisions on the floors and walls still... Go and edit your wall object and add a simple box collision.

I've added box collision to my floors and walls. Still running/falling through them.

I had the same issue, as far as I can tell its the way its suppose to be out of the box. I got this plugin, which was able to give my vr camera collision.

You may need to look at the dropdown for the collision presets and make sure the collisions overlap/block for both the character and the wall. Look at the specifics in the collision category for both the wall and the VR pawn. You may also want to try enabling "Simulation generates hit events"...hope this helps!

Have u gotten this to work with vr? Just curious, because i tried that too and no matter what or how restrictive i set my collision, it does not prevent camera from moving into walls. Its like it doesnt respect normal collision and parenting rules.

Unfortunately I have not.
