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"

AI rotating and moving forward (running away)

Hi guys, I'm new to UE so I'll just show the blueprints and see if I'm missing anything. I'm trying to write a task for the AI to rotate and move forward (running away) as shown below. No problem with rotation but what I can't think of is how to get the AI to just move forward. Any ideas?

My way of doing it would be to get a position away from the target you want to run away from by substracting the target and self positions and simply using the Move To behaviour tree node

I've tried that and it would only run away in the same direction.

Get the facing angle of your AI and just let it move toward that direction at certain unit length( a vector times a float), and periodically repeat the process so it just keep running? Might not be the best solution.

I won't be surprised if there is a way to let the AI just keep moving. Say if it's a character with controller, I can just hold down the D-pad or the left stick, and the character will keep going until I release the buttons. Maybe you just need a variable that determines the direction, and speed. Not sure if AIs are able to work this way.
