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"

Can I alter world gravity through scripting?


I want to be able to alter my level's "World Gravity" at runtime. Is there a way to do this through scripting? I know I can SET my Default Gravity Z in the project settings.....and even override that in the World Settings....but is there a way I can alter it at runtime? As an example, I'd like to have "normal" gravity and then once my player overlaps a trigger volume I alter the gravity such that all physics objects float away.

Product Version: UE 4.21

A similar question was asked so many times that Epic Games should really consider adding the possibility to change gravity via blueprints =)

Anyway, you can use a workaround: set physics objects' Simulate Gravity to False and Add Impulse once (if you just want them to behave like in zero gravity and just float away a bit), or Add Force on Tick (if you want to simulate the gravity angle change).
