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"

Cone line trace possible?

Hi,

I've made a single line trace to trigger an action when it hits something. This works fine. However, I the line trace should actually be a cone, like a view cone of a person. Then if the object hits the cone lines or is in the cone, it should be triggered. Is this possible to make in blueprint? Or else by C++?

Thanks in advance.

This type of query is not supported by PhysX so it's not possible in blueprint or C++. You could try using a combination of shapes like spheres and capsules of different sizes to fake it.

I took an array of sphere traces gradually increasing in size. If one hits, exit out of the loop. alt text
