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"

Getting hit location without affecting physics

Probably a simple one... hopefully

I have balls that have projectile movement modifiers that bounce around my scene, these bounce off eachother.

What I want is when a different actor, lets call it "cube" hits one of these balls, for it to fire the hit event so I can get location and normal data, but for it not to affect the current trajectory of the ball. I have tried turning off add impulse in my cube and reducing its mass to the lowest amount 0.01, but still on hit it changes the trajectory of the ball.

I can use the on overlap node, but then I have no hit location or normal.

Any Ideas how I can get my hit and normal location without the "hit" affecting the balls?

Can you use the overlap, but when overlap event fires, you will make a second test to fetch the hit info?
