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"

Why can't I put a box trigger in the component section of my blueprint?

I know I can make a special box trigger blueprint which essentially does the same, but what if I want a blueprint that has a mesh at the root, but a box trigger on each side of the mesh?

Why can't I add certain components to an actor blueprint? what are the rules to this? because right now with my current understanding it seems pretty arbitrary.

You can create blueprint with mesh and add several Shape component. If you add events for all this shapes, you get several custom trigger volumes. If you need comunicate your blueprint with Level Blueprint or other blueprints in project, read this docs
