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"

4.19 Help getting projectile to fire straight when moving quickly in 3ds space

I have a little 3d space ship shooter that I am tinkering with and I am hitting an issue when getting my projectile to fire in a straight line while I fly around.

I have added velocity from the ship to the projectile and that helps some but it seems to introduce a strange rotation away from center of ship and the offset gets worse as I go faster and as I introduce more axis or rotation.

I also saw from other posts to disable physics from the projectile and to set the projectile movement speed to 0 and let the blue print read velocity and also the addition bonus velocity to move the projectile. alt text

I think maybe this is an issue from my Y rotation not getting set correctly. Anyone have experience with this type of setup? doesn't seem like it would be an uncommon type of projectile
