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"

Picking up an object you’re standing on - weird physics

I am using a physics handle to pickup objects. The problem is, if I pickup an object underneath me or look down while I’m holding an object, it starts floating up towards me and I fly away with it. Is there any way to tweak this to get a simple fix?

Had a similar problem with an overlay weapons pick up I was working on. I ended up having to change collision and turn off physics for the object.

to get around some of the problems THAT caused i have a BP that spawns the non physics version of same object while destroying that one...ugh...i'd def like easier solution

Wouldn’t that allow the objects to clip through walls by turning the physics off?

I ended up just disabling collision between the player and the object held by changing the held object’s object type to a custom channel that is set to ignore collisions with pawns and change it back to default when you release the object. I won’t mark this as solved, as I was originally trying to keep the collision enabled but avoid the behavior of flying when Looking down while holding an object; This is just a workaround “solution”

Basically same thing I've done. I have all these problems tutorials don't have. Just did Sparks particles and mine are orange marbles. ... Can get event dispatchers to work. And my shot gun only fires in one world direction.... Sigh
