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"

letting exterior ambient sound enter room

I have ambient sounds in my level and "Audio Volumes" to dampen it when in the building. When the player opens the door they are still inside the audio volume so the ambient sounds cannot be heard, but that's unrealistic when the door is open. How do I get the exterior ambient sounds to enter the volume when the door is open?

A workaround I'm testing is to spawn or play the exterior ambient sound (inserted in the door blueprint) when the door is opened. That works, but I can't stop or destroy the sound when the door closes.

So I figured out what I needed was to add an audio component of the ambient sound to my blueprint. I disabled auto activate so the sound wouldn't start right away, and then added play/stop nodes. Works great except I'd like the sound to fade away as the player moves away from the open door. I've tried multiple attenuation settings but the sound remains consistent everywhere. Any ideas about what settings will work here? settings visual

Just had to enable spatialize in both places and set the attenuation falloff correctly and the effect works perfectly!
