The Bug ~ Update DampingProperties
I have no problem updating angular damping!
But I do it via the body instance directly, and in C++.
Make sure to call this!
/** Update instance's linear and angular damping */
**Solution ~ My C++ Code For You**
Here's some code for you to get this work, you could turn this into a BP node
UPrimitiveComponent* Comp = GetYourComp
FBodyInstance* Body = Comp->GetBodyInstance();
if(!Body || !Body->IsValidBodyInstance())
Body->AngularDamping = your new value
I will make this a BP node shortly and you can see if it works for you ( EDIT, compiling the BP node right now)
This is what I do in C++ and it works great
**I even update the Angular Damping dynamically based on how much linear velocity the ball has!**
Update: Everything Works in 4.7.5
I just tested your issue in 4.7.5
Drag an EditorSphere into the level (content browser->show engine content)
set simulate physics in the editor
set the damping to 300 in the editor
position sphere above angled surface
angular damping works great!
**More Info Is Necessary**
A. Can you confirm that if you do the steps above it works for you too?
**B. And can you then confirm whether AddForce() still causes the problem even if the steps above all work for you?**
C. And then you can say what happens if you use AddImpulse() instead?
PS: Epic is not paying me to write all this, I am just doing it cause I care :)
