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"

Creating a building system. Need help snapping to other objects.

Hey all,

I'm currently working on a building mechanic where you can snap the object to be built to other player created objects. I currently have a line trace system in place and can place the objects wherever I want in the world BUT I cannot seem to get them snap together. I've seen a few tutorials on snapping but they're not exactly what I need or they don't seem to work correctly.

Basically, the way that I see it is that I should be able to set either a socket or a component that I want to attach the new actor to and then use that location from the BreakHitResult node to set the location of the new object to be placed. Is there another way to go about this?alt text
