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"

Overlap event occures from parent actor

Hello. I have two actors - parent and child. In child actor I have OnComponentBeginOverlap event. When child actor works as separate actor (without attaching) - all works fine. Overlap event occures and works as I expect.

But when I attach child actor to parent actor - overlap event starts to occur when I hit to PARENT collider... I don't want it, I want to get this event only when child collider overlapped.. Where is my mistake?

Try disabling the Parent's collider when attaching (and possibly re-enable when detaching).

Just to make sure I understand fully tho:

  • How do you Attach / Detach?

  • By Parent and Child, do you mean a child Blueprint class?

Thank you for your answer. I will try to disable collider..

  1. I tried to attach using AttachActorToActor and AttachActorToComponent.

  2. No. It's two different blueprint actors. I just want to attach one to another and don't use parent's collider for child actor..
