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"

Adding Relative location to a pawn

Hey, I'm a little stuck on this at the moment. I have an actor that can freely rotate around the Z axis.

This means if this Pawn hits an object, it will spin around (and the camera is fixed it will spin also). When attepting to move this pawn as it's spinning however, the inputs still are mapped to add World Location.

I essentially have the below at the moment. Are there any functions available which would add relative location to the pawn?

I haven't been able to get a system to work from googling. Hoping for a push in the right direction, but any help is much appreciated! :)

 //Move the Player
 FVector DesireMovementDirection = FVector(PlayerPawnInput.MovementInput.Y, PlayerPawnInput.MovementInput.X, 0.0f);
 FVector Pos = GetActorLocation();
 Pos.X += DesireMovementDirection.X * MoveSpeed * DeltaTime;
 Pos.Y += DesireMovementDirection.Y * MoveSpeed * DeltaTime;
