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"

Using Mouse Position to Move Actor: Restricted to Viewport Space!

Hello all!

I am seeking assistance with using the movement of the mouse to influence the position of an actor in the world space.

My blueprint script (in the level blueprint as of now) is:

I have also set the view of the player controller to a cinema actor upon play:

So when I hit play, I can control the cinema actor with the mouse movement (and see what the camera sees), but I am restricted to the viewport coordinate system. Is there a way to indefinitely move the actor in a direction without being restricted to the bounds of the viewport?

Much thanks! :)
