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 create a simple Carry and Drop Blueprint?

Hey guys, ive been looking to walk up to an object (an open crate) Pick it up, have it locked on the chest socket, and be able to drop it right where you are aiming. ive looked up multiple ways to do this but haven't really found the set up i am looking for. i have a system now that will pickup physics objects and i can throw them, but the problem with that is you have to continue holding down the button to hold, and if you run into something, he drops it, and also when holding it in the air, it spins, its like it needs 2 points of grabbing so it wont rotate.

What i want this for it to be able to bring the crate on an island (my pirate game) fill up the crate with physic objects (loot) and be able to return to the ship, while carrying the crate with items and set it down in one of the loot rooms. Im trying to make an immersive looting system by a simple blueprint set up that doesn't require inventory or anything, just literal carrying items.

Thanks so much! every comment is much appreciated!
