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"

Multi Sphere Trace for Objects not detecting AI Pawns

Im trying to set up two AI. One prey, one predator.

I am working on giving the predator line of sight detection of all other pawns (prey). I am using a modified version of step 11 in the UE4 Behavior Tree Quick Start Guide as seen here


I am not at home so I cant link my actual code, but its basically identical to that.

I added some print strings to the output of the hit on each trace so that I could if and what they are "seeing".

When the player enters the volume, it can see and move toward me. But when I place the AI pawn for the prey, it doesnt report "seeing" anything.

The prey pawn is simply a sphere with simple floating movement, and a collision sphere. It is definately a pawn and yet it doesnt count as one for the multisphere trace.

EDIT I believe I have found a bug in the EObjectTypeQuery variable. http://i.imgur.com/pmBlpqR.png

It only lists pawn, not pawn and/or character. However, this code will chase an empty character, but not an empty pawn. http://i.imgur.com/9HY64hh.png
