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"

Is there an empty actor you can add to scenes?

Essentially I want an empty/blank actor with no mesh/etc. that just has position and rotation, to which I can add other actors as children.

Hi Vampatori,

You could create a Blueprint Actor (assign it an Arrow Component) and use that. Or you could add a Static Mesh to your level and set under Rendering in the Details section to "Actor HIdden In Game" show it doesn't show up. If you're going to be using it a lot, probably better to go the Blueprint route.
