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"

from the sound of it your attaching to the actor but not specifying a specific place or bone that you want it to be located so its going to the actor origin. one way that ive accomplished what your trying to do was to add a socket to the mesh and either attach the helmet to the socket or have a generic mesh already in the socket and just set the mesh to a different one (the helm) when needed.
