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 place an object and it stays until is moved again?

Hi everyone,

What would be the best way to set up an object so that it stays static after manipulated by the player?

So I would like the user to indicate where a certain object in the real world is in their playing space. Imagine there is a hardware box in the real world, and the user should in the game be able to mark it (by maybe marking with the trigger once the controller is at the same position as the object?).

I thought of a solution where there would be an object in VR and the user would place that object in the same position where the hardware is in the real world.

Please let me know if there are better ways to approach this.

Regards, Bruno

You can have a look on pickup actors tutorials. The object stays static unless the players use it. The object is not movable per say, but is placed in the world when the player puts it down and removed from the world when the player picks it up.
