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"

rotating character and then moving foward in that direction

I have a player character and so far I have the character moving forward and backward and was able to get the camera to turn independately from the characters movement controls. So if I'm moving forward with the keys I can use the mouse to look right while still looking forward. The issue I am having is that I was to be able to rotate the character using left and right and when I change the direction of the character the movement should now go in that new direction because X has now changed. Its like my character is ignoring the fact that its now rotated. Thanksalt text

I'm not sure how you're setting your ForwardMovement variable, but the AddMovementInput node uses a normalized world-space vector, so your ForwardMovement variable should contain that.

To get the normalized world-space vector, use the Get Actor Forward Vector node.
