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"

How do I set a top-down camera to rotate on command?

I'm trying to make a top down game, and I would like to set the camera up to be able to rotate around the player character when you press 'Q' and 'E,' and I've been searching for days for a way to do that. Everything I've found is out of date and the specific controls have changed or don't work, can anyone help me out? Thanks!

recommend multiplying by deltatime and a speed variable so that different framerates don't rotate at different speeds
