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"

How can I dynamically change the scale of an object along a single axis in a single direction?

I want to be able to have an object that the player can scale along a specific axis, but only in one direction (ie: I want a box to be extruded along the positive x but not along the negative x). I have set it up in blueprint where the object scales along the axis, but it does so in both directions.

I have attempted to change the pivots of the mesh in Maya so that the pivot is on one side of the object, but when I re-import the fbx, the pivots seem to default back to 0,0,0 so that doesn't seem to be a solution.

If anyone has any suggestions for solutions to this problem, they are appreciated.

I took a quick look and didn't see an obvious answer myself, but someone else might now. One idea, maybe a scale + plus a translate would do the trick.
