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 to ignore parent rotation?

So I am making a vr game and i have a sword in my level that i need to get the world rotation of. When i start the game the sword is at 0,0,0 rotation. When i walk up and grab the sword while keeping it in the same position, the rotation is completely different, how do i get the rotation of the sword relative to the world, regardless of the parent rotation.

How do you grab the sword exactly? Provide more information, please.

If you attach it to some bone or some scene component, then you should check that bone/component rotation and tune sword rotation respectively
