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 do I change or swap a characters collision object for select actions?

I setup my side scrolling game character to slide on an input using a montage animation. After hooking everything up in the blueprints it seems to work fine aside from not being able to change the collision capsule.

I can add a box component at the size I need for the slide in addition to having the default capsule but I need to be able to say use "slide collision" component while sliding and when you're not sliding use the default capsule.

Are there blueprint nodes that support this kind of collision swapping? What are they called and where would they go in the characters blueprint? My setup uses the 3rd person blueprint as the base if that helps.
