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"

Enemy character pushes through everything

See, the problem I'm having is that the root Capsule Component of my enemy is not the type of collision shape I need. Thus I tried minimizing the root Capsule Component and then add another Capsule that matched what I originally wanted. Though the problem with this is that whenever the enemy, say tries to walk through a closed door the door just flings open even though the enemy's collision is much lighter than the door.

When using the original Capsule Component all physics and mass etc. works great! But when I add a new collision component, it doesn't get affected by other collision and just pushes through them. Even the player gets knocked away instead of just blocking the enemy.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)

I've found that tying physics to the mesh rather than the capsule is preferable. The ragdoll preset gives excellent results.

Didn't give the results I'm looking for. The character still is too strong, forcing it's way through everything with physics. Flings away the player too. The original capsule component is the only thing that doesn't do this, seems that Static Meshes works too.
