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"

Magnetic Hovering Physics on Hover Craft?

Hello all.

I'm trying to make a hovering vehicle that hovers just above the surface of the ground where at any point in space the craft will always be a certain distance from the surface of the ground / track with a little leeway for buoyancy / bounciness. One idea I had was to have a tubular track where the craft would hover above the surface of the inside of the tube and remain a certain distance between the surface and the center of the tube. Something like This:

So far I have been playing around with hover components similar to in the Unreal Tutorial by Zak Parrish https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kltaGld6fQ and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPVaDndT7tY and looking around at posts and threads on similar topics.

Here is the Blueprint from my hover component and a short example of the ship: alt text

So any ideas on ways to go about doing this, things to look into and research or any help you can give is much appreciated, anything to get me started cheers.

EDIT: Here is how the craft works atm: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dSiLf5-A2fo&feature=youtu.be

Hey, not specifically, I moved on to other projects but I have learned a lot since then so might be able to help you with this after the mega jam ends.
