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"

Why is my invisible trigger box moving my character incorrectly?

I'm trying to make a climbable invisible trigger box that moves the player up. But it seems to move the player suddenly forwards and to the right, or on some attempts where I changed the blueprint slightly, down and through the floor. I don't know why. I made sure the values for the z coordinate are always positive and I never touched x and y. I tried using an initial location that is set in the editor with a visible tooltip but that didn't work (though I kept the end location set like that). Here's the blueprint on the climbable trigger: alt text

Taking a look at your Blueprint, what do you have set for the End Location? If you've only touched the Z and left the X and Y at zero, that might be the problem as you are set to Lerp from Initial Position to End Position.

For the B input on the Lerp node, try doing a Initial Location + End Location that feeds into the B so you'd take the position of the player character and add to the Z to move him up.

Thanks! That worked, but I found the end location to not be as accurate and easy to set up as if I just had a destination actor and used its location for the end location which is a little more clutter but it's still easy to use. So it works now! :D
