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"

bullet's realistic rotation

I ask You for it second time, dear friends. The problem is specific: my bullet doesn't fly forward with it's nose, but do it with it's side.
The bullet already rotates as it flies, but perpendicularly it's way.
I think it's because UE takes the side of cylinder like the forward part. Help me please to make it fly correctly.

why not just use the rotating movement component. you could also try reimporting the asset with a different rotation on the z axis by opening the bullet mesh and changing the import transform settings.

This should not be done in the editor. Model the bullet in a 3d program instead. You will then have full control over its forward axis.

The front of the bullet in its actor blueprint needs to be pointed forward in the X axis. I mean in the Viewport when you edit the blueprint. Would be a good idea to make it that way in the mesh asset too but maybe you dont have to.
