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"

What happens when an actor crosses Kill Z?

What actually happens when an actor crosses Kill Z?

I jump one of my two characters off the edge of the map and when they cross Kill Z they disappear and their health bar empties, but all my references to the character are not coming back as nullptr (ie. CharacterPointer == nullptr returns false). My check PlayerArray == 1 comes back as false as well, even though the other player (character) is physically not there.

Am I doing something wrong here? What is Kill Z doing in this situation and is that what it is supposed to do? Is there any way I can change the behavior of Kill Z?

Let me know if you need more information to help me answer my question.

Every time when actor cross KillZ, It execute actor event FellOutOfWorld, and by default (Actor implementation) it destroy itself (Except Controllers, this class override actor implementation).

In your case you should override this function and implement your own behavior (for example, respawn character)

 Void MyCharacter::FellOutOfWorld(const class UDamageType& dmgType)
     // Todo smth
