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 move an object in player direction without physics?

I am trying to push an object. Essentially all I want to do is get the direction of the player, and when they hit the push button, the object finds that direction, and based on it, decides where to go.

For example, player is facing east, move object east. I don't want the object to match the direction of the player, I want the object to get the direction and let me decide what it does with that information.

Get Player Pawn -> Get Actor Forward Vector will return the direction vector of the player. You can then use a Timeline or Tick to move from one location to the other, along that vector.
