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"

Alternative to Capsule for AI Character

I have odd shaped enemies, and I want to use the Character class so I get all the fancy walking, jumping, swimming, AI Controller class, etc. features.

How do I get the character to use the Mesh's collision (or even a set of box colliders) to determine where it can move instead of the default capsule?

Have a look at the answer for this thread: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/43564/request-change-rootcomponent-in-custom-character.html Currently, we do not support using any collision other than capsule for the Character class. You may be able to do something closer to what you want to accomplish using pawn, but it would require a bit of work on your part. I hope that helps.

Have a great day,
