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"

Are you still looking for an answer? If so, I can share the BP once I'm back on my dev PC.

I was able to get something working using:

  • "box trace by objects" to find a target and its location (get the location from the Hit Result)

  • "launch character" node coming off of the "event tick." The direction is the (target's location vector) - (Sonic's location vector)

So every tick, it's launching Sonic towards the location of the homing target.

You'll need to adjust which objects to ignore though. Or use a function to to only search for objects of a certain class.
