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"

Physics Door That can be LOCKED.

Hi I Have A Physics Based Door that can be moved using the mouse and also by players or any other object that is thrown or moves through it. The door is using a physical constraint that allows it to swing within limits and i can use a mouse to grab and swing it open or closed. My problem is how do i lock it. First I turn off the ability to interact with the mouse and i cannot open it that way but i can still walk into it and swing it open.

I turn off physics simulation on the door but it still moves which i find strange , i also tried turning off collision on the door and that works great but when i turn collision back on the door falls out of the frame , collision also breaks the constraint.

If anyone knows a way of locking the physics or temporarily turning it off that would be great.

PS. i also tried checking the door every frame and making sure its in the correct position but this isn't an ideal solution and with a lot of force the door still vibrates around :)

Try This out, all I'm doing is using a BP Interface to call the lock/Unlock event when the character has a line trace on the door. I have it working, though it snaps to 0,0,0 coordinates, I think maybe playing with a branch at the start finding the doors current rotation and whether it's within a lockable swing range?
