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"

Do UE4 behaviour trees not tick every parent node to the leaf nodes every frame?

In most implementations of behaviour trees I've some across, the entire tree is ticked from the root downwards every frame, allowing sequences and selectors to re-check their conditions.

In effect this removes the needs for services.

Am I right in thinking this is not the case in ue4? It seems that while a child node is running, execution is firmly at that point. hence services which can act as interrupts. sort of.

this would explain a lot in my mind.

You're correct, this is part of our BTs design. Stuff gets ticked only when it requests to (active task, the services, some specific C++ implemented decorators) and the rest is just waiting for events.

Recently I've did some work on BP-implemented decorators (to essentially fix them) and if you use them to abort the flow (flow "observer") they will get ticked as well.

Cheers,

ah ok, this makes sense, and actually allows for much neater graphs. Thanks for the info Mieszko!
