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"

How do i get the velocity of an object hitting me?

So i am trying to make my character go ragdoll when i fall from a hight or get hit by a fast moving object. My idea was to use an event hit so whenever i hit the ground from falling or get hit by an object at a certain velocity i go ragdoll, but so far i can only get my character's velocity when i run into stuff or fall and land on something. So my question is, how do i get the velocity of any object hitting me? Or is there any other way i could do this that is more effective?

First of all you need to enable Hit Events in character physics (capsule). Then use EventHit to process it and get hit actor.


But getting velocity is different for different kind of objects, like projectiles, physics objects, pawns and so on.

For example, with physics objects you can do Get Physics Linear Velocity.
