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 keep momentum in third person template

I am trying to keep my momentum in the third person template. For example, if you want to turn around mid-jump you will keep your energy and keep moving at the same speed in the direction you are pointing. how could I change this in the third person template?

I won't claim to be an expert in this area... but a couple of quick/easy options might work:

1) ... enable and tweak Air Control on your Character Movement Component (I think you need to be Jumping mode... but maybe Falling mode is OK too)

2)... switch your Character Movement Component mode to Flying... and enable/disable gravity as you need to

Maybe you can get Current Velocity, and set this value to be the new velocity, but in the Forward Vector direction. And you will have to do that on Tick. But I've never tried anything like this, so I don't know if that will work as you want.
