Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Editor Convert to Actor

Good evening,

I have created my class which extends from AStaticMeshActor (class PROTOTYPE_API AMyActor : public AStaticMeshActor), next I went to the starter map, and I used the editor to convert each mesh to AMyActor. The problem is, when I use C++ get the Mesh's class name on collision, it keeps telling me its a "StaticMeshComponent" and not a "AmyActor". What exactly is wrong? How can I make it so the output is "AMyActor" (or at least, its class)?

You are aware that AStaticMeshActor is just so you can freely place UStaticMeshComponents on level without need of making blueprint just for dead static mesh? If you want to make your own actor with model you extend AActor and add UStaticMeshComponent in to it,

Actually I found at least 3 different ways to do this, with all due respect Shadowriver, your information is not correct. Anyway thank you for the reply and taking the time.
