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"

Telltale Style Mouse Navigation in BP

I have a basic room scene with an angled perspective camera. I want my actor to navigate to the nearest spot on the floor to where I click the mouse button. My problem is with finding the floor location of that click.

I added a ConvertMouseLocationToWorldSpace node, added the two output vectors together and plugged it into the goal pin of a Simple Move to Location.

For some reason I've found that I have to multiply the World Direction by between 300-500 to get my actor walking at all. I don't know why. None of the values get him orientating correctly.

Can anybody please suggest a simple way for me to get an absolute point on the floor that I can pilot my Actor to?

Here's what I'm using at the moment, and the angled view being clicked into.

Got it! Turns out there's a node for that. Get Hit Result Under Cursor By Channel.
