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"

Is there a built in way for an object's spin to affect it's bouncing or hitting objects?

For example, imagine a sliced ball in tennis hitting the ground, it would affect it's bounce height and add a possible acceleration or slight change of direction to it. Or, if you were to throw a basketball just up and spin it backwards toward yourself, when it would land it you bounce up and go over you. I hope I managed to explain what effect I'm trying to reproduce.

Is there a way to achieve this with what is already available in UE4, or do I have to "manually" add forces to these spinning actors depending on the spin force, material friction, etc?

Thank you.

The bouncing ball template seems to be doing what you're describing, no?

Yes, thank you. I've looked everywhere but in the templates, silly me.
