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"

Making a mesh set to "always visible"?


I am attempting to make my character stay visible when moving behind walls (top down view, 45 degree angle). I have a blueprint for changing the opacity of the meshes that cover the character when it moves behind them, but I figure that making the character itself always visible, or giving it an outline or something similar might be better (as I am currently dealing with the problem of all the meshes with a set tag being hidden instead of just the ones the character is behind).

Does anyone know if something like this is possible with materials or the mesh itself?

e: I solved the problem of hiding specific walls through this post: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/55897/how-do-you-handle-visibilty-in-a-top-down-game.html

There has been a UDN artcile on how to do this in UDK. Maybe you can adapt it to UE4.
