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"

How to store a SplineComponent's shape in a blueprint?

I need to create blueprints that have SplineComponents of a specific shape stored within them. So that I can spawn them multiple times across different levels and always get the same spline shape as part of the object.

Is there a way to do this?

From what I can see in 4.4.3 one can add a SplineComponent to a blueprint but the points of that spline can only be edited on a per instance basis. One could think a workaround would be possible by creating the spline in a BP construction script and aligning spline points with some other components in the BP. That however is also impossible as the only functions available to modify spline points (AddSplineLocalPoint etc.) only take a location vector as input, so there's no way to control the point's rotation and tangent making this approach pretty much useless for all but the very simplest cases.

If storing a complete spline shape inside a BP is not possible with the current iteration of tools, perhaps there is a change to engine code I could make to get that behavior?
