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"

Noob question about syntax and MoveToActor

Hi, I have a enemy character controlled by a AIController, and I want it to follow the player. I figure I could use the "[MoveToActor][1]" function, but I'm very new to programming in unreal, and don't know exactly how to use it. Where it says "AActor * Goal" I assume I should replace it with the Player_Character class, or the Player_Character_BP?

EPathFollowingRequestResult::Type AEnemy_AI_Controller::MoveToActor ( AActor * Goal, float AcceptanceRadius, bool bStopOnOverlap, bool bUsePathfinding, bool bCanStrafe, TSubclassOf < UNavigationQueryFilter > FilterClass, bool bAllowPartialPath ) { // return something here? } [1]: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/API/Runtime/AIModule/AAIController/MoveToActor/index.html

Hello, that's the right syntax to move an actor to another actor:

 AActor* actor_goal;
 UNavigationSystem::SimpleMoveToActor(GetController(), actor_goal);
