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 would I make my character die from a long fall

I have a level set up inside of a cave system with a long drop into a new area.. on the walls are platforms to make your way down to the base of the shaft... But... if you jump off the edge you will fall to the bottom and carry on as normal, which knocks about a minute of gameplay off... I want to be able to have the player die if you fall a certain height to avoid being able to essentially 'cheat' and easily get to the new area.... Is it possible to do something with velocity ? Im very new to UE4 so I have no idea if anything like this is possible and if so, how would I achieve this ?

What about an appropriately sized "Kill Z" volume?

thanks for the reply :) that would work but no matter what, you would walk into it eventually from the platforms, the best way to describe it is a huge vertical pipe with ledges inside of it spiralling from top to bottom for the player to jump onto.. you have to get to the bottom of the pipe via the ledges/platforms, but if you jump straight down i want to kill player... unless I do the sized kill z and have it turn off on the last ledge if that can be done ?

The solution that Cø mentioned is probably more appropriate, but yeah, a "Kill Z" volume could be placed at the bottom of the pipe and disabled via a "Trigger" volume on the last ledge/platform (or wherever you deem appropriate).

You can apply damages based on velocity to your character in the Landed function, if velocity is high enough the character will die when touching the ground.
