I’m not a coder. I have experience in modeling and animation, but no “under the hood stuff”. In other words: speak to me slowly.
Okay, my end goal is to look at a light switch and have it turn on with key input. I know I need to use a LineTrace (forObjects?), but haven’t even been able to get that to work. I followed the UE4 documentation to set this up:
I’ve created my own object type - because that seemed to make sense to me, but maybe it isn’t necessary? Anyway, I have this blueprint in my firstpersoncharacter bp exactly like the UE4 tutorial, but I’m not getting any indication that it is working when I test it.
I have placed a single box over my switch (that would be set to invisible render) and set its collision type to ‘LightSwitch’, my custom object.
Nothing is happening. What have I done wrong? Also, is there a better approach? And why does the space between my eyes hurt so much?
