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"

Move several cubes with a single key press

Hi Guys,

I have a simple question. I have made a tank out of simple cubes, around 200 in total. I have grouped them to "ChainLeft", "ChainRight", "Chassies" and so on. alt text I can move a single cube with the "Input Key event" and "AddActorLocation offset". But when i drag the whole group to BP the every box is an actor which I have add the local offset...

How can I keep all cubes of the left chain as 1 actor in BP? How to stick 2 or mor boxes together so that they will handeld as on actor (physics and so on)

Hi Alpa1981,

Try building each object that you would like to have moving (base of the tank, turret, etc) in their own blueprint. Then create a master blueprint that uses the other blueprints as ChildActorComponents.
