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"

Problems with dynamic nav mesh

Hi everybody! I have a problem with the dynamic mesh: when I set it in the Project Settings -> Navigation mesh my characters make just a step and then stop moving, but when I use a static navigation mesh it's all right, they can move wherever they want. Do you know why is this happening? I followed some tutorials, but they're all referred to old versions of the engine, and they cannot be done using the 4.9 version.

Thank you Alessio

Product Version: UE 4.9

I resolved my problem. My character affected the navmesh, so he had a null nav mesh under his feet. I think characters should never affect nav mesh.

I used affect nav mesh for pathfinding other actors,in my example, if character doesnt move, it has affect nav mesh and other actors can find way around this actor, because moving character has no applied affect nav mesh

Yes, it was one of my tries, but it didn't work well im my case. In fact I'm making a RTS and when I give the selected character the order to walk, he makes a step and nothing more at the first try, because the navmash needs to be updated. It is better to use the CrowdFollowingComponent in the AI controller.
