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"

Mario Kart like collectible item setup

Hey folks!

I try to achieve a BP setup for a collectible item, similar to the ones you see in the Mario Kart series.

I tried a solution but got stuck, it would be nice if you could help me out with this.

The problem is that the "boost?" variable in the car_01_BP does not know if the item in the level was collected or not.

Here's the BP for the item:

And for the car:

You may want to have a racast(s) detecting the pickup, instead of collision. Form that raycast result you can cast to the raycast result, and ask if "boost?" = 1 (boost always = 1, but that way we confim that object you're hitting really is a booster), which then turns the internal boost of the car on.

Hope this helps, -DoctorPC

I can't seem to crack it, can you give me a more detailed explanation of what I have to do in order to achieve this item collect functionality?
