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"

How does my npc "know" there is a Nav Mesh?

So I built a Nav Mesh on my level (NavMeshBoundsVolume): alt text

Then I made my NPC randomly move using Blueprints: alt text

He moves on the Nav Mesh perfectly. What I wanted to know is how the hell does my npc know the Nav Mesh when I obviously have not called the variable in my NPC blueprint? Is Unreal that awesome when It sees a Nav Mesh it applies to all characters on the level?

Hi JakeOfSpades,

It is hard-coded into the engine. As long as you pick the correct blueprint class for the character it will automatically be linked to the Navmesh.
