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"

Office Holiday

Epic Games' offices will be on holiday from June 22nd to July 7th. During this period support will be limited. Our offices will reopen on Monday, July 8th. 

Is it possible to set the radius of the audible zone of a sound?

Basically set how far away the max value will be for a sound to be heard.

I have a bunch of projectile shooters, and I don't want to overwhelm the player with the projectile sound every time it's fired from one of the many projectile shooters.

Sure. UnrealEngine uses Sound Attenuation Model for this stuff.

You can assign to each sound how exactly it will propagate through space

You can change radius(Or use not sphere, but cone or capsule for "zone"), distance, equations and a lot of different stuff

This is perfect!

My question is how do you add this to your blueprint script?

EDIT: Found it! It's under the audio component you can add to your blueprint!
