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"

Auto-Weld disabled when Simulate Physics is True

Hi guys, I am simply trying to have 2 components on an actor, which both have mass. I want them to be positionally locked to each other, which I want to achive by using the auto weld feature. The center of mass of the entire actor should then be located between the two COMs of the components. However I don't succeed: If I enable Simulate Physics in the details panel of the child component, Auto Weld is greyed out. Why???? I thought welding is exactly for having 2 pyhsics simulating components behave like 1.

If I use the AttachToComponent node in the graph and tick "weld simulated bodies", then both components keep correct distance, but the mass of child-component does not seem to be taken into account. I am astonished by how hard it is to do this simple task, unless of course I'm headed into the wrong direction.

best regards, Simon
