Navigation Testing Actor

C++ Source:

  • Module: NavigationSystem

  • File: NavigationTestingActor.h

Editor Properties: (see get_editor_property/set_editor_property)

  • act_as_navigation_invoker (bool): [Read-Write] Act as Navigation Invoker

  • actor_guid (Guid): [Read-Write] Actor Guid: The GUID for this actor.

    Note: Don’t use VisibleAnywhere here to avoid getting the CPF_Edit flag and get this property reset when resetting to defaults.

    See FActorDetails::AddActorCategory and EditorUtilities::CopySingleProperty for details.

  • allow_tick_before_begin_play (bool): [Read-Write] Allow Tick Before Begin Play: Whether we allow this Actor to tick before it receives the BeginPlay event. Normally we don’t tick actors until after BeginPlay; this setting allows this behavior to be overridden. This Actor must be able to tick for this setting to be relevant.

  • always_relevant (bool): [Read-Write] Always Relevant: Always relevant for network (overrides bOnlyRelevantToOwner).

  • auto_destroy_when_finished (bool): [Read-Write] Auto Destroy when Finished: If true then destroy self when “finished”, meaning all relevant components report that they are done and no timelines or timers are in flight.

  • auto_receive_input (AutoReceiveInput): [Read-Write] Auto Receive Input: Automatically registers this actor to receive input from a player.

  • backtracking (bool): [Read-Write] Backtracking: Instead of regular pathfinding from source to target location do

    a ‘backwards’ search that searches from the source, but as if the allowed movement direction was coming from the target. Meaningful only for paths containing one-direction nav links.

  • default_update_overlaps_method_during_level_streaming (ActorUpdateOverlapsMethod): [Read-Only] Default Update Overlaps Method During Level Streaming: Default value taken from config file for this class when ‘UseConfigDefault’ is chosen for ‘UpdateOverlapsMethodDuringLevelStreaming’. This allows a default to be chosen per class in the matching config. For example, for Actor it could be specified in DefaultEngine.ini as:

    [/Script/Engine.Actor] DefaultUpdateOverlapsMethodDuringLevelStreaming = OnlyUpdateMovable

    Another subclass could set their default to something different, such as:

    [/Script/Engine.BlockingVolume] DefaultUpdateOverlapsMethodDuringLevelStreaming = NeverUpdate see: UpdateOverlapsMethodDuringLevelStreaming

For events when objects have a blocking collision, for example a player hitting a wall, see ‘Hit’ events. note: Components on both this and the other Actor must have bGenerateOverlapEvents set to true to generate overlap events.

  • on_actor_end_overlap (ActorEndOverlapSignature): [Read-Write] On Actor End Overlap: Called when another actor stops overlapping this actor. note: Components on both this and the other Actor must have bGenerateOverlapEvents set to true to generate overlap events.

  • tags (Array(Name)): [Read-Write] Tags: Array of tags that can be used for grouping and categorizing.

  • text_canvas_offset (Vector2D): [Read-Write] Text Canvas Offset: text canvas offset to apply

  • update_overlaps_method_during_level_streaming (ActorUpdateOverlapsMethod): [Read-Write] Update Overlaps Method During Level Streaming: Condition for calling UpdateOverlaps() to initialize overlap state when loaded in during level streaming. If set to ‘UseConfigDefault’, the default specified in ini (displayed in ‘DefaultUpdateOverlapsMethodDuringLevelStreaming’) will be used. If overlaps are not initialized, this actor and attached components will not have an initial state of what objects are touching it, and overlap events may only come in once one of those objects update overlaps themselves (for example when moving). However if an object touching it does initialize state, both objects will know about their touching state with each other. This can be a potentially large performance savings during level loading and streaming, and is safe if the object and others initially overlapping it do not need the overlap state because they will not trigger overlap notifications.

    Note that if ‘bGenerateOverlapEventsDuringLevelStreaming’ is true, overlaps are always updated in this case, but that flag determines whether the Begin/End overlap events are triggered. see: bGenerateOverlapEventsDuringLevelStreaming, DefaultUpdateOverlapsMethodDuringLevelStreaming, GetUpdateOverlapsMethodDuringLevelStreaming()
