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"

Why does my set actor location fail?


I want to spawn a projectile on LMB, keep it in front of the player and on LMB release shoot it.

My problem is, when I use set actor location in my projectile BP, my player gets moved around weirdly.


Why doesnt it work? Thanks

Product Version: UE 4.15

I think it's because you are trying to put the projectile and player in EXACTLY the same world location.. so the collision in your player is moving you

your welcome... imho the best way to achieve what you are aiming for is:

in your Character/Pawn BP... put a Scene component in the location to represent where you'd like your projectiles to spawn

in your Projectile BP... Get World Location of the Scene component

Good luck! :)
