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"

Making Civilian A.I. Crowds Flee from the player using BP's

Im struggling to find any relevant blueprints in order to get my Crowds of A.I. to flee from the player, I had an idea of making a trigger box attached to the player and then when they come into contact they run to certain target points but this wouldn't look real, as when assigning random radius points some may be towards the player. How could I make them all flee together and disperse in a realistic looking fashion?

maybe you had to read more about detoure crowd and things in ue4 ai module, it's doable though, but i don't think it can be done in bp yet...

There's no single solution to do that. You need to enable crowd simulation for your AI (RVO or Detour - there're many threads explaining how to do that) and implement the logic telling your AI to "run away from player".

I have realised this and have now created my own crowd simulation with the behaviour tree and blueprints, that flee on danger triggers set off by the player i.e. OnSeeingPlayer, Shooting etc...
