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"

You have to attach your gun to a socket. To do this either parent it to your mesh's right hand and position it manually inside your blueprint or make a socket on the right hand inside the skeleton and position it. You can also add a preview mesh on it. If the hand bone is rotated in such a way that the gun doesn't face directly forward when patented you can eathet rotate it to face approximately straight forward or you can add a attach to component inside your construction script and parent your gun to the right hand bone or the socket you created and use "keep world" for the rotation.
