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"

The rotation is not the issue. You are spawning it at the socket location. With the camera rotation it will fly straight towards where the camera looks so it will have the offset your socket has in relation to the camera.

What you could do is get a trace from the camera, get the hitlocation, get the rotation from that location and your socket and use it. (It's really easy to do that. There is a "look at" node which takes two locations and provides the rotation).

Or you could put the weapon in the middle having that very slight offset to the bottom with which one could live. Especially if you enable a small gravity effect from the projectile movement component.
