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"

Spawning Random AI

Hi, Quick Question that may not be so quick.

So i would like to be able to have ships flying overhead, and there be a variation on what ships spawn and where they go. I thought that procedurally would probably be the easiest way to go about it. So i created an enumeration and labeled it for each ship, then went to my AI Pawn Bp and began coding. There apparently isn't a random select node, which sucks. But honestly I'm not sure where i would have went after that anyways. Does anyone have any ideas?alt text

This is what I have so far. Am I headed in the right direction at least? Also, is spawning a skeletal mesh even practical in terms of performance, as long as i destroy it once its out of player view?

Thought I'd update and see if this is correct there on the left? Problem is that there's no way to track it until i build the logic for the AI

Something I did learn is that doing this in construction script is an awful idea. Caused my whole computer to freeze. I thought doing it there would help, but i was definitely wrong.
