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 do I trigger events with another object?

How do I trigger a blueprint with another object (that's not the player). I've been trying to set the overlap detection so that it detects if a specific object has overlapped with the trigger and if that happens then the blueprint activates. So how do I do that because I've been working with collision detection events and nothing seems to be working.

You need to make sure on the other actors collision you enable "Generate Overlap Events" in their collision details panel.

Hope that helps =)

It's still not working. I'm using the OncomponentHit node but I'm wondering if I'm missing something with that.

Here's what I'm wondering. First off am I using the right node because I want it to say when that specific object overlaps with the trigger then it activates.

EDIT: nvm I figured it out.
