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"

Physics path prediction

Hi there

(I am very new to UE, and learning as fast as I can, but just for planning purposes, can you tell me if the following is possible:)

I need to create AI actors which are aware of the path of a specific projectile, lets say a ball. Preferably, I would like this projectile to be governed by UE physics.

My question is: Is there a way to get future positions or predicted path of a moving projectile? Obviously these future positions will only be valid until some force changes the path. When this happens the future positions would change. (The scope of prediction probably will be less than 5 seconds).

Thank you in advance,

Regards, Revan

i dont think u can predict actors with physics enabled. but u can do it for projectiles, which might be enough for ur needs.
