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"

Box Collider Parent with Capsule Childs

Hi, the rotation of parented capsule colliders seem the be ignored in physics simulation. This only seem to occur in combination of a box collider as a parent and capsule collider as a childs. I attached a test project and here are the recreation steps:

  1. create an actor with a box collider that is simulating physics and set the collsion to "block all"

  2. Add a capsule collider, set it's collsion to "block all" and rotate it so it points away from it's original rotation

  3. attatch/parent the capsule(s) to the collision box

  4. notice how the rotation of the capsules are ignored on the actual physics simulation

I also tested it with boxes as childs, that works fine. Also if a capsule is a parent it works correctly.
