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"

[VehicleGame] How to change VehicleMovementComponent to custom one?

I wanted to add some updates to the custom Vehicle Movement component in the VehicleGame demo, that is in Pawns/VehicleMovementComponentBoosted4w.h/cpp

but I noticed the buggy pawn does not seem to use that component at all, instead utilizing VehicleMovementComponent4w

How can I set it up to actually use VehicleMovementComponentBoosted4w instead - or any other custom movement component derived from the default one?

Thank you, that worked just fine. Although one issue I'm having is this: in the vehicle Blueprint the component displays the proper parent ("VehicleMovementComponentBoosted4w"), but when I try to access properties added in the "boosted4W" class, I have to cast the VehicleMovementComponent to VehicleMovementComponentBoosted4w.

Here is my class declaration:

 class UVehicleMovementComponentBoosted4w : public UWheeledVehicleMovementComponent4W
     UFUNCTION(BlueprintCallable, Category = "Game|Vehicle")
     void Test1();
     UFUNCTION(BlueprintCallable, Category = "Game|Vehicle")
     void Test2();

Both, test1 and test2 are only accessible after casting as seen in the screenshot below. Is that to be expected or do I need to change code declaration?

It is not issue. I must cast the VehicleMovementComponent to VehicleMovementComponentBoosted4w.
