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"

Calling a function based on component hit

I've got an actor, say a "ship" with child components. Say it has two components, something like two cubes called "IncreaseVelocity" and "DecreaseVelocity".

I've got a trace set up on the first person character controller which returns the hit component.

How would I call a function in the "ship", based on the component that the trace hit?

For something with just a couple of components, this might just be enough:

For more components, make array from the Ship's components and loop.

I guess this is the only way after all? Fair enough, will make it work with a loop, thanks for your answer!
