The Move Towards ability will move the character to a specified location. This is most useful in situations where the character must be in a precise location before another ability can start. As an example the Interact ability may require the ability to be positioned in front of a door before that door can be opened, or a Climb ability may require the character to be positioned in front of the ladder before the character can mount on that ladder. This ability will be started manually by the controller and should not be triggered by the user.

The Move Towards ability works with the Ability Start Location component in order to determine the location that the character should move towards.

Setup

  1. Select the + button in the ability list under the “Abilities” foldout of the Ultimate Character Locomotion component.
  2. Add the Move Towards ability. The ability will be able to start no matter what position it is in within the ability list.
