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"

Need Ideas on Making a Character That Slides Across the Ground

In many platformers, the character exhibits the ability to slide on ground, depending on the velocity of the character. For example, imagine dropping a character in the air with no horizontal speed. The character then comes into contact with some ground at an angle. In many games, the character would slide across the ground, losing elevation, until the frictional forces cause them to stop. A good example of this is the movement from the Halo series. (Which I am more or less trying to replicate) By default, the character class in Unreal does not have this functionality.

I want to know the most practical way to achieve this. While it would be much easier to add this sliding functionality to the existing character class, I don't know if that's possible. Creating my own player movement seems like an extremely difficult task. Does anyone have any guidance for me?
