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 do I chose a default player character blueprint?

Hello! I am working on a project and I wanted to use the player character blueprint from the content example. So i migrated the folder over to my project, but whenever I place it in the scene and play, it doesn't use that blueprint. Is there any way to have the player start object recognize a specific character blueprint as the default? Thanks!

Hey XanderTheFeind,

Erasio is correct, if you double-click your player blueprint you can set it to auto possess the player or AI from within the details window, under 'Pawn'.

Thank you! :)

You can select in the defaults an auto possess which will cause that character to automatically be possessed when you start playing.

You could also define that character in your game mode where you define all important classes which will be used.
