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"

Wheeled vehicle turret control

I've got vehicle model imported from Blender. It is single skeletal mesh which has main bone, wheel bones, turret and launcher bones. I want turret and launcher follow my camera rotation. I've managed to get some results with following animation blueprint, but the way it looks it appears to be the wrong approach. So the question is what is the correct way to do this with blueprints? alt text

I don`t know may be it` something with my vehicle design, but the turret part is not inheriting main body movements. So the best result I get with separated vehicle mesh

Ok, splitting skeltal mesh into separate parts and assigning local rotation to static meshes attached to parent skeletal seems to be the only way to achieve my goal
