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"

What you are asking could have a lot of approaches and objectives but if you are doing a first person or third person game, what first comes to mind here is:

-On the event of pressing the E key:

-Line trace (channel):

-From: Center of the screen

-To: Forward vector of the rotation of the camera, times the reach in distance you want it to have, + camera location (someone correct this if it is wrong)

-Then check if the trace hit a grabbable object by:

-"Equal (object)" at the "hit actor" or "hit component" output of the trace as you wish (split the output struct of the trace to find this), and compare them to the actor or component you wanna know if was hit by the line. If it was a grabbable object, bingo.

-You might wanna chain some branches at the falses of other branches to check for different objects.

This is just a way to do this. Then you can do whatever and fire whatever action or event with that object found by the trace. Lemme know.
