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 to get multiple physics object to connect and work as one?

I tried child actors and sockets but the objects keep falling apart.

Also if the meshes overlap it causes unstable physics (lots of uneven shaking)

By using the Physical Constraint Actor I made my multi-mesh actor being "one", look the unreal doc about that PhysicalConstraintActor component for more details, but you can lock the transform of the children and ignore the collisions between parents and children. (you must make one constraint for each other mesh, for each mesh, so Mesh x Mesh Components to add)

You must also attach the children to the parent, and enable collision plus Simulate Physics before adding the Constraint.
