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 can I use an AABB for collision instead of a capsule?

I'm trying to refine the side scroller (code) project into a prototype for my game, but I can't quite figure out how to switch from a capsule root to a box root for collision. I've gotten as far as creating my own subclass of Pawn and mimicking the default Character class, but UBoxComponent doesn't seem to have nearly as much functionality as UCapsuleComponent. In reality, I just want to use a simple axis-aligned bounding box for collision as opposed to a capsule; the actual path there doesn't matter to me very much right now. I feel like I might be barking up the wrong tree trying to get ACharacter to work exactly the way it already does, except with a UBoxComponent.
