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"

Can you store a struct in a blackboard? And what about arrays in blackboard? Is this possible?

Hi,

I want to store an array of structs in my AI Blackboard but I cant seem to do this. There is however a class option - is the way to do it to store all my information in a new class? Or is it possible to get support for structs and arrays in the blackboard?

Basically, I want my enemy characters to be able to store information about other enemy characters around them, I was hoping to use a struct for the data, then an array of structs where each element is for the specific enemy.

I could make a class but I was just wondering if this is available to do in blueprints in any way?

Thanks in advance!

I just found the question posted on arrays in the blackboard - I hope this support comes soon! It would be extremely useful! In the meantime I will have to find a way to do it with custom classes I think...

We are going to support arrays in 4.8. User-created structs not so much - it's very tricky and we're blocked by some BP details. We'll add it as soon as possible.

And as a fallback you can always create a custom BP class storing your stuff and have that stored in Blackboard. That's supported from the very beginnings of our Blackboard implementation.

Cheers,
