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"

Pawn Sensing through static meshes? Fix?

I am having issues with my pawn sensing component seeing/sensing through walls/static meshes. I thought this would have been more of a hot topic but can't find related questions about this.

I actually think I figured it out.. So off of OnSeePawn I do a line trace for the CharacterPawn and use that to determine if the rest of the logic should be allowed to execute.

Is that the official way of doing this? Just figured the Pawn Sensing component would have the ability to edit the trace channels and what have you.. Anyway.. This is working for now, just decided to post this anyway to get the correct answer to this question if this isn't the correct way to do it/best practice.
