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"

As you have not provided any blueprints I will assume that you use Add Controller Yaw Input node in your Input Axis look Right event.

In this case you can use Get Controller Rotation -> take only the Yaw value -> Mare Rotator -> Get Forward Vector. I will call this Forward Vector.

From this point on you can move your Pawn in the Forward Vector direction multiplied by your desired speed and the Axis Value.
