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"

i have a variable in my players blueprint called CurrentHealth. I want that value of that variable to decrease if the player enters the pain causing volume. I cant figure out how to actually make that happen. What is the proper way to use pain causing volumes?

You can see the Pain Causing Volume in action in the "Volumes" Map of the Content Examples Project. It emits events, which you can consume with "Event AnyDamage" on your Actor.

the content example for volumes was super unhelpful, but event anyDamage was exactly what i was looking for. Thanks!
