So, I watched the tutorial videos on Introduction To Blueprints on their Youtube Channel:
I decided to remake the Wall Sconch light used in this example, only I wanted to determine whether I was within range to flip the switch on the wall light based on distance between the player target & the instance of the wall lamp itself, instead of overlapping a trigger volume. However, it doesn’t seem to be working.
In my Nodes, I used the ‘Get Distance To’ Node, with one target being ‘self’ and the other being the Player Character, to return the distance float. I then created another float variable called Trigger Distance to be the distance by which I wanted the player to be within in order to trigger the light. Then I passed the bool value into a ‘Toggle Visibility’ Node, with both the Spot & Point lights as the targets, and an ‘F’ key event as the execution node for the toggle.
In-game, all this is resulting in is me being able to press the ‘f’ key anywhere to toggle the light on & off. Mind you, I have the Trigger Distance set to 5.0 at the moment. So i’m not sure where I went wrong. Here is a snap shot of my blueprint
Any ideas what I might’ve done wrong?
