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"

How can I filter out overlapping Actors?

I'm trying to make a simple power up blue print but I'm running into and issue with the AI pawns triggering the blueprint. I'm trying to filter it out on the overlap to determine whether or not the what is overlapping the power up is the player or not. I tried the comparison in the second picture, but I found that at run time UE4 adds "C##" to it which is causing the check to fail. Is there a better way to handle this?

I think you can use the CastToPlayerShip node.

Drag from EventActorBeginOverlap's Actor output and then you should be able to cast it to your playership. If the cast nodes don't show up make sure the Context Sensitive checkbox is on.
