Get relative hit location?

An actor walking on top of a platform that is 10x10. If the user is moving along positionally 1,1 then 1,2
then 1,3 etc. etc. is there a way to get the relative location on tick? i.e. get the location the character is hitting the platform relatively and not by world position?

You’d normally approach something like this with an Inverse Transform node:

  • the character movement component already knows what we’re standing on so I’m using that
  • we then inverse transform from world → local
  • this will produce values in the range of -50 <> 50 as the component is 100uus across
  • you can then use Map Range node to translate them into any other range (or just math it out)
  • you may need to account for scaling if necessary
