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 to set up AI to interact with first person character?

Hi guys, so I opened a Blank project in order to create a VR level, in this level I want to have some AI that reacts to the character, in a way I did managed to create a solid AI that follows my character when he sees me on a 3rd person level, but somehow when I did the same thing in the Blank project he just goes to idle and never move again. I wondered if that was because I didn't have a proper character (only a starting point as it is set by default on a blank project) so I created a character (without skeletal mesh only capsule) but the problem persisted. I cannot find any AI tutorial that isn't on a 3rd person game, so I wonder if anyone can help me with this problem.

Thank you in advance

Do you have a Navigation Mesh in your new level? AI movements typically require one. Press P while in the editor. If you don't see the floor turning green, then you don't have a Nav Mesh and need to add one.

Yes I did a simple 3rd person tutorial in order to understand AIcharacter tree and all those details, it worked perfectly on the 3rd p level, so my question is why it doesn't work on a blank project...

You may be missing something in your new blank project, but it is hard to tell without seeing the project, Can you share it or at least some screenshots?
