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"

Switching Characters Using Context Menu

I am still very new at UE4 so please be patient with me.

I have been searching and searching for a way to switch characters that are in-game, very similar to the way State of Decay works, but all I have found online is a way to toggle characters by pressing tab.

I would like to actually walk up to the character that I want to play as, press "e" to bring up the context menu for that character and then select the option to play as that character.

Broken down in the steps that I would like:

  1. Either a) walk up to an idle playable character, press "e" on the idle playable character to bring up a context menu or b) open a context menu and select a different playable character

  2. Select the "Play as this character" option

  3. Take control of that character. By doing so it would either set the previous character as idle, return to home coordinate, or activate AI (assuming the AI is already done for the idle character)

  4. Enjoy other character with a different set of attributes/skills :)

I understand that a lot of this is pretty complex but I was hoping and would really appreciate it if there was something/someone out there that could assist in getting me started.

Cheers!
