    UNREAL UE 4 - Plane landing tutorial?

    Hi,I have found plenty Flight video tutorials... BUT none explain, how to land a plane in the floor, basicaly what i would do is fly slow in the ground and stop my plane....But it doesn´t level perfecly to the ground, how can i make it land automaticaly and level perfect to the ground?

    Please share BP images, thanks


    You need to add stability circuits! Jacky's Viper project has an example...
    Search Community-Tools... Landing smoothes out the plane Roll / Pitch.
    It also has Smooth Braking too but doesn't use gradual altitude descent.

    For that, you need a Get-Up-Vector / Set-Linear-Physics combo in Tick...
    Or Get-Up-Vector / AddActorWorldOffset, if you're not using Physics etc.
    For code: Seek out sample Flying projects by Tom Shannon / TheJamsh ...


      Ok, ill check it out.

      I basically created a flying ship, it moves forward by pressing up button, but when it stops moving (close to the floor or high in the air) and i want it to land...failure, i cant make it work... i tried with snap to grid but it never finds the right floor position, and since flying rotation can be kind of "out of a normal position" i tried fix it first with "setactorrotation" but it keeps rotating to a weird position, not to were im loking and it snaps... i cant smooth this movement. What i would like is: even if i´m fliying and my Y positin its super high, when i press L button i want my ship to stabilize rotation and starts landing down with a vertical move to the ground until it touches the floor.


        You have a real choice to make. Keep guessing at this or work off a working template.
        The resources mentioned above is within easy search and works, start from that point...
        With flight physics, constraints/smoothing is needed to stop plane going out of control.
