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"

orient rotation to movement is jittery

When using "orient rotation to movement" of the CharacterMovement component in a client/server setup, the rotation ends up being jittery. This is not always visible, but the slower the rotation and the bigger the character -> the more jittery it gets.

My theory is that in this setup server rotation is being replicated to client, but there is no smoothing mechanism on the client that'd make rotation less jittery. I can only prove this by a video i made:

I switched to 4.21 and the jitter seems to be gone. Almost as if some optimizations have been done in the code.

You must replicate all objects in the character, including root and character movement. (Do not replicate the animation at all!). For the size of the object: (the character should be called to the players their relative transformation, otherwise it would be more like putting a giant puppet attached to a tiny character in this case.
