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"

CharacterBP doesn't register OverLap Event

I am using the TwinStick (Spaceship/UFO) template where I cruise around the map looking for the AI (aiCharacterBP) running around. Well, my TwinStickPawn mesh has a capsule component (CapsuleCollisionConeAIsucker) underneath it so when I fly over a aiCharacterBP it sucks him up (I move his Delta Location Z) so it looks like the UFO is sucking him up based on an the capsule collision's BeginOverLap event. This is working But I have a BoxCollision right above that where OVerlap is not working.

The problem is when suck up the AI Character, the box collision (BoxCollisionToKillaiCharacter) isn't registering him (AI Character) hitting it (Overlap event). I even took out all my BP code and have a simple "Print String" when anything hits the BoxCollisionToKillaiCharacter BeginOverLap event. I attached the pictures and it's seems to be really simple but everything I do doesn't work.

Thank you!

Make sure your character has capsule collision component. And as previous helper said Generate overlap events must be checked in both actors.

Make sure under the box settings "Generate overlap events" is ticked.
