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"

Behavior Trees in combination with steering behaviors

Hello there,

first of all I want to say that I posted the same question in the unreal forums here but didn't get any answer.

My porblem is that I implemented steering behaviors like seek, flee, flocking and so on for my RTS game. I am currently using a simple FSM in the Tick function of each RTS Unit example: if IsTargetSet -> seek().

Because of more flexibility and maintainabilityI want to swtch to Behavior Trees. Same procedure. Decorater with IsTargetSet should activate the Seek behavior task. But since I need to calculate the steering forces in every Tick and the BT Task is only called once or at each BT Tick the calculations would be wrong, wouldn't they?

I maybe need some more in depth knowledge about the BT Tasks.
