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"

My FirstPersonCharacter is unable to walk up stairs

Hi. Originally, the FirstPersonCharacter was able to walk up stairs. Since I reopened the project file last week (I hadn't opened it for about a month), I had to remove the stairs and make a ramp, because the player is unable to walk up any ledge (even ledges about 1cm tall). I have had to flatten EVERY floor out just to let the player walk around. Can anyone help me with this? I have already checked the character movement section and the max step height and other stuff related to it is all set to the normal, original values. Thanks in advance, Bryn Kennedy.

Is your navmesh actually generating on the higher stairs?

Oh, what I mean by the FirstPersonCharacter is the player, not any AI or anything.

You probably made your steps too high for the player character based upon it's default "max step height". Either make your steps shorter or go to your player character, click on the movement component and scroll down to "Character Movement Walking" and the first thing in the details panel under that tab is "Max Step Height", default is 45, change it to 75 or whatever you need and your character should be able to climb higher steps.

I have already tried this, and I have set the max step height to over a thousand.

And also it is any ledge, including something that in real life would be less than 1cm tall.
