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"

Help with FPS Highlighting/Outlining and Level Completion


I'm not very proficient with Unreal but I'm trying to make an FPS game where the player swims around a lagoon clearing pollution.

  • To do so they must look at the pollution (bottle, tire, barrel) and it will be highlighted with an outline.

  • Then they must left click with the targeting reticle over it to destroy it.

Once all of the pollution has been removed the game ends. It's the parts in bold that I'm struggling with. I've looked up some tutorials online, such as these;

But they seem to use earlier versions of Unreal and/or don't make sense to me :( Could anyone provide me with guidance or links to tutorials that could help please? I've hit a bit of a brick wall with my project.

Oh, just thought I'd add.

On the level blueprint and character blueprint I've set the 'Auto Receive Input' to 'Player 0', that should enable mouse clicking shouldn't it?

It's still not working anyway :(

Another update: I've sorted out the destroy actor problem by making a blueprint class with a trigger box. Once within the box the object is destroyed by pressing E. Still can't work the Outline though, or level completion once the objects are destroyed :/
