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 change skeletal mesh in code?

I want to be able to dynamically change a skeletal mesh to another skeletal mesh during gameplay. Essentially I have a weapon (skeletal mesh) and a socket which serves as the attach point for the weapon's scope (skeletal mesh). There are many different scopes, so if the player decides to change the scope type, how can I replace the current one with a new one?

How can I change a skeletal mesh in code?
