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"

Your "Controller" is a UMotionControllerComponent.

You can give your Character/Pawn a set of these for the hands. The MotionControllers can then have USphereComponents for collision detection; when the player has reached into something.

Something like:

 Character
     MotionController_LeftHand
         LeftHandMesh
             LeftHandCollision
                 OnOverlap
                     LeftOverlap(true)
                     LeftOverlapping = OtherActor
                 OnEndOverlap
                     LeftOverlap(false)
                     LeftOverlapping = nullptr
     MotionController_RightHand
         RightHandMesh
             RightHandCollision
                 OnOverlap
                     RightOverlap(true)
                     RightOverlapping = OtherActor
                 OnEndOverlap
                     RightOverlap(false)
                     RightOverlapping = nullptr
 
 Input
     RightTriggerDown
         Character->IsRightOverlap( )
             Character->RightOverlap->Pickup( )
     RightTriggerUp
         Character->IsRightHolding( )->Drop( )
     LeftTriggerDown
         Character->IsLeftOverlap( )
             Character->LeftOverlap->Pickup( )
     LeftTriggerUp
         Character->IsLeftHolding( )->Drop( )

The Blueprint VR example is a good example of how to manage the components for UMotionControllerComponent/UMeshComponent/USphereComponents.
