    • 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"

Spring arm lenght. Disable camera retraction but keeps collision

Hi People!

I have a 3rd person game with a camera attached to a spring arm. I need the spring arm for various reasons but I want too that my camera keeps fixed in the same distance to the character, even if camera collide with a wall. I mean, I want to disable the retraction of the spring arm, but keeping the collision with objects. I have tried to attach a sphere collision to the spring arm but nothing happens. Could you help me? please

You stand with your back to the wall, what do you expect the poor camera to do then? It can't retract, it can't clip since you want to keep the collision. Where do you want it to go?
