unreal.PlayerController

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

Bases: unreal.Controller

PlayerControllers are used by human players to control Pawns.

ControlRotation (accessed via GetControlRotation()), determines the aiming orientation of the controlled Pawn.

In networked games, PlayerControllers exist on the server for every player-controlled pawn, and also on the controlling client’s machine. They do NOT exist on a client’s machine for pawns controlled by remote players elsewhere on the network. https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Gameplay/Framework/Controller/PlayerController/:

C++ Source:

  • Module: Engine
  • File: PlayerController.h

Editor Properties: (see get_editor_property/set_editor_property)

  • allow_tick_before_begin_play (bool): [Read-Write] 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 for network (overrides bOnlyRelevantToOwner).
  • attach_to_pawn (bool): [Read-Write] If true, the controller location will match the possessed Pawn’s location. If false, it will not be updated. Rotation will match ControlRotation in either case. Since a Controller’s location is normally inaccessible, this is intended mainly for purposes of being able to attach an Actor that follows the possessed Pawn location, but that still has the full aim rotation (since a Pawn might update only some components of the rotation).
  • auto_destroy_when_finished (bool): [Read-Write] 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_manage_active_camera_target (bool): [Read-Write] True to allow this player controller to manage the camera target for you, typically by using the possessed pawn as the camera target. Set to false if you want to manually control the camera target.
