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"

Is there a Get/Find Physics Constraint node?

Is there any type of Find/Get Physics Constraint Node?

Like lets say i made a physics constraint using the Add Physics Constraint Component node and then set the constraint using Set Constrained Components.

comp1 is A box and comp 2 is A cone. the Target is comp2(the cone)

Now if i wanted to break the constraint using Break Constraint,this will work fine if i say,shot a linetrace from my camera to the cone and made conditions/checks that IF the hitActor/Comp was the cone then it would fire a Break Constraint node.

That works because the Physics Constraint was MADE on that comp2(the cone) But what if i wanted to break the constrain thats attached to comp1(the box)? It wouldn't work because the Box doesn't have a Physics Constraint Component to return(from what the error dumps in UE4 tells me). Only the cone has it.

If there was a Find/Get constraint/constrained node,then i could use that to break it. But i cant seem to find one or a way around it. Now i can find a way around it if its ONLY Two objects that has a Physics Constraint. BUT in my case i have A LOT more objects.

So is there a way to do it or is there a Get/Find Physics Constraint Node that i've just missed?
