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"

Squad formation

Hi! I'm making a RTS videogame and I would like to put my troops in a certain formation when I move them. Is there something in UE4 that makes my work easier?

Hello, AleSpini

Luckily, Unreal Engine 4 provides special class for this called UCrowdManager.

Hope this helped!

Have a great day!

Ok, thanks, I am already using the UCrowdFollowingComponent, but I don't know how to create the formation, even if I have read the documentation you gave me. Probably it's my fault, but can you help me with that? Thank you!

It would be great to know how to make formations using the crowd manager

I am not sure it is possible. You will have to use some simple math to create formations.
