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"

Player Collisions, Mesh Overlaps, Killing a player

Im trying to set my game so when the player hits a trigger, a train will move in a matinee sequence and if the train hits the player then the player dies. Problem 1: When moving, my train, or box for now, goes through the player not colliding with the player Problem 2: The overlap/collision does not register on blueprint so i cant use it to do anything next Problem 3: Unsure how to go about killing a player, is it just a destroy actor?

  1. Pawns receive movement only from their bases by default, which is why the train doesn't do anything to the player. I don't know how to make the pawn receive movement from the train though, so I'm following this question to see if someone knows how.

  2. ???

  3. No, that's not how you do it. you should play some sort of animation for killing the player, or a particle at least. Never destroy objects out of the blue, specially not the player's pawn.
