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"

TopDown character rotation affecting the direction

So I'm trying to recreate "snake game" movement within top down view, where player always moves forward and only can manipulate direction the snake is going through using A and D keys to change yawn. alt text

^ tried that however it rotates only the pawns without affecting the orientation

Instead of using "get" DIRECTION "vector" nodes you should use "get Actor" DIRECTION "Vector" nodes eg. get actor forward vector as shown in photo. alt text
