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"

VR Motion Controller Pick up Actor

i have a Project in the VR Starter content Project.

i want the throwing balls (staticMeshComponent)alt text from the starter map in my Project but as an Actor (because of OO).

With the same settings i get the controller vibrations when i get near the object but it wont grab.

Any ideas what i need to change?

If your question is about picking an object and throwing it in the air, the default VR template has a pickup cube blueprint, which works fine. Just duplicate that pickup cube blueprint and change the mesh to whichever model you want.

Is there any specific reason that you wanted to have it on an actor? Every object in Unreal is based out of an actor.

i want to change the objects parameters in one place instead of every Object by hand.
