Instance functions[edit]

ActivateEventClass[edit]

simulated final function bool ActivateEventClass (class<SequenceEventInClass, Actor InInstigator, const out array<SequenceEventEventList, optional const out array<intActivateIndices, optional bool bTest, optional out array<SequenceEventActivatedEvents)

Iterates through the given list of events and looks for all matching events, activating them as found.

Returns:

true if an event was found and activated

ApplyFluidSurfaceImpact[edit]

simulated function ApplyFluidSurfaceImpact (FluidSurfaceActor Fluid, Object.Vector HitLocation)

Called when this actor touches a fluid surface

CalcCamera[edit]

simulated function bool CalcCamera (float fDeltaTime, out Object.Vector out_CamLoc, out Object.Rotator out_CamRot, out float out_FOV)

Calculate camera view point, when viewing this actor.

Parameters:

  • fDeltaTime - delta time seconds since last update
  • out_CamLoc - Camera Location
  • out_CamRot - Camera Rotation
  • out_FOV - Field of View

Returns:

true if Actor should provide the camera point of view.

CanActorPlayFaceFXAnim[edit]

simulated function bool CanActorPlayFaceFXAnim ()

Returns FALSE if Actor can play facefx Implement in sub-class.

CanSplash[edit]

simulated function bool CanSplash ()

Called when this actor touches a WaterVolume to let the volume know if it may spawn an effect.

CheckForErrors[edit]

function bool CheckForErrors ()


CheckHitInfo[edit]

final simulated function CheckHitInfo (out TraceHitInfo HitInfo, PrimitiveComponent FallBackComponent, Object.Vector Dir, out Object.Vector out_HitLocation)

Make sure we pass along a valid HitInfo struct for damage. The main reason behind this is that SkeletalMeshes do require a BoneName to receive and process an impulse... So if we don't have access to it (through touch() or for any non trace damage results), we need to perform an extra trace call().

Parameters:

  • HitInfo - initial structure to check
  • FallBackComponent - PrimitiveComponent to use if HitInfo.HitComponent is none
  • Dir - Direction to use if a Trace needs to be performed to find BoneName on skeletalmesh. Trace from HitLocation.
  • out_HitLocation - HitLocation to use for potential Trace, will get updated by Trace.

CheckMaxEffectDistance[edit]

ClearLatentAction[edit]

simulated final function ClearLatentAction (class<SeqAct_LatentactionClass, optional bool bAborted, optional SeqAct_Latent exceptionAction)

  • bAborted - was this latent action aborted?
  • exceptionAction - action to skip

DisplayDebug[edit]

simulated function DisplayDebug (HUD HUD, out float out_YL, out float out_YPos)
