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"

End of one actor to be the start of another using Hierarchical Instanced Static Mesh

So I'm trying to make an L-System using my own method and I'm running into a bit of trouble regarding Hierarchical Instanced Static Mesh's.

Is there a way to get the next instance of the mesh to use the previous instance's transform. I'm trying to get one to start where the other one ends, but I can't think of a clean way to do this.

I currently have this:

Which leads me to this: alt text

Is there no cleaner way to do this? Do Hierarchical Instanced Static Mesh's not inherit the previous instanced mesh's transform like with parenting?

HISM has nothing todo with Parenting. You get what you asked for: the same trasform as the Instance before. There is no magic thing that knows anything about your Mesh Size or form or where it should end up. Thats up to you. Get your Math right ;P

You know funnily enough just before posting this, I thought of using this method but I had a brain flop and dismissed it before trying it...Now I know to always try things before dismissing them...And to read the docs ;)

Thanks man!
