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 do I change player controller for strategy game.

Hello my name is Lewis Foo and I'm currently making a strategy game for a paid project but I've come in to a bit of difficulty with my player controller. I start off as the usual strategy game controller with a top down view of the world and I can click on units and they highlight. I've managed to get the current player controller to possess a unit when I press e on a unit but it still has all the top down view controls how do I make it so that the possessed unit has first person controls after I possess it?

you need to handle the input inside of the pawn. so when you are in the top down view selecting units you want a pawn that just has a camera and can fly around and handle the flying around input in that pawn class. so for example you want to have your classes set out somewhat like this:

 public class AMasterCamera : public APawn
 public class AInfantryUnit : public ACharacter
 public class AVehicleUnit : public AWheeledVehicle

So handle all the input in the player classes. How would I get mouse position of controlling player inside the characters?
