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 to make AI not detect my player

Hi, I have created a Drone follower to follow my third person character around and shoot at my enemies

Currently the drone shoots at any pawn it detects including my character as I cant find a way to differentiate between my character and the enemies. All seem to fall under 'pawn'

thanks in advance for any help

Product Version: UE 4.21

you could easily add in another check to see if the target is the player. beyond that its pretty situation dependent so we would need more information such as seeing your script.

Instead of checking for "pawns", create a custom collision channel for "enemies" and have your AI drone search for "enemies" instead of the "pawn" collision channel. This will easily separate friendlies from enemies.
