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"

Ragdoll too massive?!?

Hello, fellow UE4 users!

Recently, I have been attempting to create a physics simulator for a robot a friend of mine built. The robot is supposed to do three things, one of which I am having great difficulty in accomplishing. The robot has a ramp coming off the front of it. This, in conjunction with a jaw, scoops up a manikin (a ragdoll model that I created). Attached is a picture of the robot for reference: alt text

However, I was having difficulty picking up the manikin with the robot. It would either push the manikin or run over it. I grew tired of attempting different things to no avail, so I started a new project and began experimenting with the basic vehicle project file. I imported the manikin and set it up as a ragdoll, just like I did in the previous project with the robot mesh. This time, I dropped a flattened cube on top of the car to use as a ramp. Below are the results of this experiment: alt text alt text alt text

As you can see, the car would push the ramp up to the ragdoll, and then the ramp would flip over. I experimented with the rectangular objects found all over the basic vehicle project file. Those I was able to collect on the ramp, unlike the ragdoll. I noticed that the rectangular objects weigh about 82 KG where the ragdoll weighs about 2120 KG.

I am assuming I am running to these issues because of mass? If so, how do I change the ragdoll's mass? I have looked all over the internet and I have not found any working way to change the ragdoll's mass.

How can I fix this?

Thanks so much! -Jack
