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"

Set Max Damage A Player Can Take, then DestroyActor

I can deal damage to a player using blueprints. But how do I make it so after some amount of damage the player will destroy using DestroyActor? How to get a damage variable from damage nodes and if it's a boolean or int destroyActor if that variable reaches true for some number or is >= int amount of damage?

Basically you need two variables in your player BP; one for to track the amount of damage received and another one to set the max. amount of damage the player can get. The first one(lets call it Damage Count) will be 0 by default, and you'll set and update it with Event Any Damage by adding the amount of damage received to itself. Then you compare the damage count with your damage limit variable, and if it's equal or greater than the limit destroy the actor. Something like this:
