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"

How to achieve character being blocked by walls?


I have tried every possible solution i can think of. None of which work.

I am unable to comprehend how to go about blocking the player from going through walls. Here is the scenario.

I tried cheating by rotating the player to allign with the capsule. I tried making it big. I tried making it small. I tried root rotation on a montage.

As you can imagine this issue is not only frustrating but down right ridiculous. There has to be a way to get the capsule to actually fit the player without wasting so much of space.

The problem is, due to only the capsule being blocked by walls, i have to make it big. I have a skel physics component. And even though they register hit events when hitting a wall... they do not stop the player from moving.

My options are exhausted. Any help would be appreciated. I really do not know anymore what to do.

One option i found to be better suited is to make step size walkable slope both 0 on the movement component.

This gets rid of the players moving down when hitting a wall if opting for the cheat method of rotating the mesh inside the capsule.

Epic wizards. I beg you. Give us more control for the capsule... alternatively let us add a simple box volume that can behave as the blocking volume around a character.
