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"

Question about AI behaviour

I have got a trouble with my ai movement. Everything okay but one shortcoming: my ai character doesn't affect with landscape normally. When he goes on a hill, he doesn't affect rotation of this climbing. He goes like vertical stick but I want "teach" him to affect hills and holes. If you understand me, it is very good :). So, how can I help him with this problem?)

That is not an issue of AI. That is an issue of orientation and animation. Until you understand why they are different, I suggest you keep your game on flat ground and use stairs. So many people try to do too much too soon. They fail miserably and give up UE4 forever.

Go slow. Understand what you are using. Then do something that will amaze everyone.

Beautiful answer! Thanks a lot for advice! I won't give up! I think, I know how to do that: I need to trace line by Z axis and take rotation from impact normal. Right?

There you go! That's half of the job. Then you need to modify your animations with "IK" -- Inverse Kinematics. That will get the feet to touch the ground even though it is uneven. Good luck and don't let yourself get discouraged -- UE4 can get frustrating at times, even for the best devs.

Thanks a lot!! I'm not the best developer, so ue4 can't get me frustrating :) (I hope, he can't...)
