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"

as far as i know nav mesh doesnt have any option for grids. why not just write your own pathing script which implements a*. with a custom path script you could still use the nav mesh when moving the characters but the path script would give you the list of points to move to. i implemented a* in blueprint and its my understanding that its even easier to do via code.

Yeah, but the engine feels to have it already done with NavLocalGridManager, and GridPathFollowingComponent. But feels like the one you have suggested is the right solution! thanks!
