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"

Do you want to change the position of the mesh?

There are so many ways of doing this. You'd need to be a bit more descriptive regarding what you're trying to achieve.

Generally speaking, you Get the mesh's location, add XYZ and Set its position. Also using YT for this is probably a half decent idea as there are hundreds of examples there.

If you're after an unorthodox way of moving your mesh, then please do include more info.

you can also use add offset. also note that you will have to do the scripting for the mesh in another blueprint such a another actor or the level blueprint.
