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"

The easiest way I did was to set Gravity Scale to something like 1.75, basically a value higher than the default of 1. It can be found in the general settings of the character movement component in your blueprint. I just have mine permantently set to this higher value, but I bet you could just set the gravity to be higher at jump time if you needed to.

To add to my answer above you could also play around with the max hold time of the jumps. This is found on the actor BP under the character section. You can also set up dbl jump from this using the Jump max count.
