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"

NavArea toggle?

Is there a way to have a NavModifierVolume switch its NavArea class in-game? Say, from NavArea_Default to NavArea_Null?

You can, but it requires setting "Rebuild At Runtime" flag (navigation preferences config). For example:

 void ANavModifierVolume::UpdateNavArea(TSubclassOf<class UNavArea> NewAreaClass)
     AreaClass = NewAreaClass;
     UNavigationSystem* NavSys = UNavigationSystem::GetCurrent(GetWorld());
     if (NavSys)
         NavSys->UpdateNavOctree(this, UNavigationSystem::OctreeUpdate_Modifiers);

It's possible to get it working on static navmesh as well, but you would need to modify FPImplRecastNavMesh class to search for all navmesh polys in given shape, switch their area Id and hope that there aren't any overlaps with other modifiers (multiple influences, cost sorting, etc).
