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 can I reduce inertia of a pawn which is using Add Force?

I fixed Linear Damping value, and Inertia Tension values but it does not worked at all. If I once turn the pawn to the left, it just keeps going left crossly, even if I release the steering key. I like this effect but I wish I can handle the rate of sliding. I am not using Vehicle class.

Depending on the exact outcome you want, there are multiple ways to approach this.

(Quick Fix) Based on the video provided I would firstly recommend you play around with adding a physic's material on the ground experimenting with different levels of friction for desired results. You could also try increasing angular damping.

However I warn you about these quick fixes, although they may work, they probably will not be suitable if your looking for complex or advanced gameplay manoeuvrability.

For more complex movement I would try implementing a blueprint system that detects angular movement and reduces speed accordingly. Something like:

Comparing speed and (global) direction of movement with current rotation in a branch that measures and limits the rotation of the angle against the speed and direction of the movement. Then all you need to do is create a final Boolean that leads to a function which reduces its speed on a giving angle.

I know this probably sounds a bit confusing so if you need me to elaborate I can.
