unreal.GridPathFollowingComponent

class unreal.GridPathFollowingComponent(outer=None, name='None')

Bases: unreal.PathFollowingComponent

Path following augmented with local navigation grids

Keeps track of nearby grids and use them instead of navigation path when agent is inside. Once outside grid, regular path following is resumed.

This allows creating dynamic navigation obstacles with fully static navigation (e.g. static navmesh), as long as they are minor modifications for path. Not recommended for blocking off entire corridors.

Does not replace proper avoidance for dynamic obstacles!

  • asset_user_data (Array(AssetUserData)): [Read-Write] Array of user data stored with the component
  • auto_activate (bool): [Read-Write] Whether the component is activated at creation or must be explicitly activated.
  • can_ever_affect_navigation (bool): [Read-Write] Whether this component can potentially influence navigation
  • component_tags (Array(Name)): [Read-Write] Array of tags that can be used for grouping and categorizing. Can also be accessed from scripting.
  • editable_when_inherited (bool): [Read-Write] True if this component can be modified when it was inherited from a parent actor class
  • is_editor_only (bool): [Read-Write] If true, the component will be excluded from non-editor builds
  • on_component_activated (ActorComponentActivatedSignature): [Read-Write] Called when the component has been activated, with parameter indicating if it was from a reset
