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"

Crosshair that follows actors

I've been trying to find a way to do this forever, but the fact that literally nothing I'm doing seems to work is maddening. Basically, in my game I want a box crosshair to appear and follow interactive/pawn actors whenever the player gets close to one. Is there any way to implement this? I'd appreciate any help anyone can offer.

Product Version: UE 4.14

I figured it out! I set up a trigger volume on actors to create a crosshair widget with the screen position set to the actor location in event tick.

You could use vector length to check if a actor is within a certain range. Then when he is, you can draw a UMG widget on the screen location of where that actor is.

That thread says at the top that it's way out of date, so not sure if it would be helpful :\
