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"

Attaching Actor to another Actor snapping back

Hello, i've been trying to get an actor to attach to another actor to create a sort of grid movement.

Whenever i move an AI_character from my TopDownGame into one of my preset TriggerBoxes in the scene, it send a message to that AI_character which then casts to my FPS player and executes a movement function. It moves to the given position for a split second and then it returns back to his original position.

From my prints the only position the FPS character is getting is the position of the trigger box, I can't seem to find out what is triggering his snapback to the old position.

Could someone help me out on this?

Blueprints I am using:

Cast Spawn To Myplayercontroller

alt text

Execute custom event that places an AI in the server and after a delay send FPSpawn reference to the AIpawn so he can initiate the movement.

alt text

Spawn The AI To Server and set the spawned AI variable so I can use it for the previous cast.

alt text

Then when everything is spawned an initialized i check per trigger area if he has an overlapping actor and check if it’s equal to the actors class that I need then execute the movement function on and send the area to move to.

alt text

This is the code i execute on the AI_Pawn

alt text

On Both instances the character moves into position and then snaps back to the spawn position.
