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"

Break Physics Constraint from Second Component?

So i'm working on a physics heavy project and i need to create Physics Constraints on the fly at Runtime. This part isn't the issue. The brickwall that i ran in to that completely halted production is the BREAKING of said Physics Constraints.

So my question is. Is there a way to Break a Physics Constraint from the Second Component? Since i'm dynamically making Physics Constraints using Blueprints(The various ways i tried were to spawn Physics Constraint Actors,add Physics Constraint Component node,Using the construction script to do it instantly,ect) But since there isn't a Set Physics Constraint Actors node i cant seem to break a constraint from the second Component since the Physics Constraint is only assigned/attached to the first Actor. And simply adding another physics constraint to the second one wont work.

I absolutely HAVE to be able to Break the constraint from either the First Constrained Component OR the Second one WHILE still simulating the Actor's Physics. Any ideas,Tips are welcome.

I even tried to spawn in Actors that attach themselves to the targets and Creates a constraint between them but sadly you cant do that because the constraint would fail.

More info; What im trying to create is pretty much the Weld/Axis gun from Gmod. Im using simple Line Trace's and what not and for the most part the Constraining works as i expected but breaking them isn't as easy to do in blueprints since there isn't a reference made on the Second Component that i can backtrack to the First one and simply Break the constraint.
