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"

Do something randomly in game time to time (like scratching)

I am wondering how can i make enemy AI to do random things? I need to make my wondering AI to scratch and moan randomly. Where shouls i put the code (blueprint). I have tried to put code in Character blueprint and in TICK event i created random int between 0 and 50 in every tick. Then if number is 0 it plays animation. It kinda works, mut there is fails there also.

If i go near NPC the behavior tree starts to take over and NPC walks towards me, it should not play the animation anymore but it will. Also when the npc is near me it still plays animation randomly because tick never ends. Is there a better way to do what i am trying to do? Should i use interface to pass boolean values between blueprints or how should i go on?

Use Set Timer and plug a random float into it.

Then use conditionals such as "Is player in range" to determine whether another set timer is scheduled after the last executes.
