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"

Flying animation for Character

Hi, i would just like to know how am i going to make my character fly around in UE4. I've watched a tutorial on YouTube on a hovering effect and i would just like to know if i could use the same blueprint to make my character fly around. I already have animation of him idling in the air and flying in a direction. My question is can i use that hovering blueprint to make him hover and just use the animation to make him fly around. Basically like the normal walk to run animation but now i want him to hover up and stay in the air and if i press the button to go forward he will lay down and do his superman thing.

If there's another trick to achieve this please let me know. I'm dying about this. Thanks.

The Character Movement Component has a lot of options including how you want the character to fly. It's as easy as setting a few options there, most importantly, enable flying:

Hi, thanks for the response. Where can i look that handles the character movements in really fine detail?

If you want to know what exactly it does you can look at the code, CharacterMovementComponent.h and CharacterMovementComponent.cpp

I found https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Gameplay/Networking/CharacterMovementComponent/ to be helpful as well and there's plenty of high level detail in the other sections of documentation such as https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/BlueprintAPI/Pawn/Components/CharacterMovement/index.html
