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 to change the center of a mesh?

As the following image, I use the TriPyramid mesh, but the mesh is now rotating along its bottom not the center. How can I make it rotate along its center?

I think there's something wrong with that picture of yours... it's not there. Since you don't provide much information, I'm gonna assume that you have an actor with a mesh component and when you rotate it, you're not happy with the center of rotation. If that's the case, the easiest way is to use a scene-component as root of the actor and parent of the mesh-component. Then you can move around the mesh-component relative to its scene-component parent, which becomes the center of rotation.
