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"

The trick with foliage is that InstanceFoliage is a sub-class of InstancedStaticMesh. If you cast your foliage to a instancedStaticMeshComponent, you can perform all the usual instance functions. Don't forget foliage has NoCollision set by default, so give it something.

In the screenshot attached I am getting all actors around me, and printing their transform. If you want to get the nearest foliage, you could get those around you and store them in an array, and sort the array (various posts on here for sorting arrays or finding closest). The HitItem pin on a hitResult returns the index of the instance.
