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"

Implementing a RTS HUD

Hey guys, I'm pretty new here and to UE4 itself. I've been working a simple RTS game (sort of like Age of Empires) but I have a doubt about how I should implement the HUD. As you know there's the edge pan and unit selection (which I've implemented in a HUD), but then you have another HUD depending on the unit you have selected. So for example: if I select a civilian it should have a "build house" button or something like that, if I select a warrior it should have the "attack" button and so on. My question is how should I approach this. I have the idea of creating a basic HUD which handles the camera pan and unit selection (because this functionality should be there no matter what unit you have select), then I create a HUD for each unit that inherits from this basic HUD class (which handles the camera and unit selection). Is this a good way to implement this? And how would I switch HUDs in real time?
