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"

Make Physics Volume ignore character/pawn?

I'd like to make the Physics Volume to ignore a character/pawn, while allowing such effect for others? I've tried finding ways for such with no luck. Any help and suggestions for this will be appreciated!

I have a very simple solution for you guys, requires no coding whatsoever - works in all levels

In your physics volume, in the details panel - go to your collision presets and change presets to "custom"

In the list - check " ignore pawn "

Since a character is a pawn - this will ignore the character (See Picture 1)

Keep in mind, it will also ignore other pawns

If that's a problem for you in this project - you can take this one step further by adding other custom actors to your collision preset list via project settings / collision (See Pictures 2 & 3)

Best of luck

I found a way to do it for any kind of actor which can own a tag...

The way got it to work is like this: (LevelBP):

And in the actor you want to ignore setup a tag with the tag wich shall be ignored.

Hope this solution / workarround helps.
