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"

How do I change an actors collision properties?

I want the main character to be able to dash while ignoring all enemies / enemy projectiles. Turning collision off works but then my character will dash into a wall. Is there a way to change the custom collision profile from blueprints?

Okay, i haven't done a ton of testing on this but you can create your own collision channel in Project Settings->Collision then you can get the Capsule Component (as example) of your character and do a "Set Collision Object Type". Make sure your walls are set to block this new custom type and everything else is not.

Hopefully that would work.

I have issues with this solution as I can't seem to make an object channel that blocks one other channel but nothing else. I can't find the object channnel collision matrix (if one exists) I want to change the collision presets, or at least add some new custom ones and switch between them is this possible?

I found the "set collision profile name" function. that, despite what it says in its description, changes your collision preset.
