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"

Calculating Angle Vectors that are rotating

So I'm having trouble calculating the angle between vectors that are changing rotation. Basically I have a pawn character that I hold-click on in VR with my motion controller and that shows me a Widget pop-up above his head with three icons. I want to calculate the angle of the motion controller's hand with the Widget Pop-Up and give me the angle the motion controller is at. With that I want to split the 180 angle into three and have each area make you choose that area's pop-up icon. In the image bellow I drew each area with a different color.

I tried to use Find Look at Rotation and it worked a little but doesn't take rotation into consideration as I'm always having the Widget rotate towards the player to face him.

I'm not sure how to calculate this to make it work from all directions and rotations. Thanks in advance for the help. :) alt text
