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"

[solved] How to make an AI that ignores players behind objects?

I’m trying to create a blueprint tank AI that will see the player, but only if the player is not behind a wall or some other obstruction. I’ve tried the PawnSensing component but it seems to only sense characters, but my player is a pawn with physics. The enemy can’t be a character because it’s a static mesh with physics and the capsule collider wont fit the shape. I’ve also tried using line traces but it doesn’t refresh and follow the player.

I’m stuck. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

EDIT: I realized my player mesh was not the root component in in the blueprint
