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 movement anywhere

Hello all,

I am trying to get my enemy characters to move freely along any solid object much like a spider does and have no idea where to start as I want the movement to be AI driven not point based so that it will be unpredictable. everything I've seen for AI movement uses NavMesh which puts the enemy paths on the ground and ramps . what if I have a cave and wanted the enemy character to be able to use all 360 degrees of it . Any pointers of where I should start on this ?

You'll have to create your own AI navigation system without navmesh, unfortunately. You can check out the butterfly AI in Blueprint Office project and Peter's AI projects here to figure out what kind of a way you need to follow to create custom AI.

Well, you don't need a custom NavigationSystem, but you do need a custom NavigationData class, that supports both "navigation generation" and pathfinding. It's well doable, we have custom navigation data classes in most internal projects.

  • MieszkoZ ,

Thanks for the heads up on what direction to take. Have you touched on anything like this in the live streams ?
