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"

Swinging Rope Impulse Problem


I have been working on a system where a rope is suspending in mid air and the player can jump up to it climb it up or down or swing through either side using it. I made a rope actor consisting of a cable and using the construction script I created a sphere collision for every segment and those spheres are constantly updating location in the event tick to fit with the segments. I made it with a sphere trace that when the trace will overlap the spheres the player can click; what i did so far is this I attach the player to the actor and make the player movemenot mode custom so he can’t move, the problem is the I cant direct the swing in any way, I dont know how to affect the rope with an impulse and so the only way I can do it for now is just change the force for the cable which doesn’t make good results. You fellas have an idea on how I can impact the rope in a physics eay where it will appear as if the player is giving force and not just a force from heaven helping, and if you have an idea which fixes on changing the setup I made I will also be glad to hear it, thanks.
