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 to not Teleport into objects?

I have a side-scroller character who I can get to teleport left and right. Thing is I want to be able to teleport past obstacles, but it would do no good to get stuck in them. Sweep won't work for me since it prevents bypassing obstacles entirely, so how do I set this up to where I can teleport by obstacles, but either stop the player from teleporting, or stop the teleport short if they're going to get stuck inside an obstacle?alt text

NOTE: Event Tick sets the vector variable you see in the picture to Player Vector + y: 500. I have a similar set-up for teleporting in the opposite direction but it's virtually the same so I did not include a picture of that.

Do a world capsule trace where the destination will be. If it hits anything, don't teleport. If it doesn't hit anything it's safe to teleport. You may need to move the capsule trace slightly up the z-axis so you don't hit the floor.
