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"

Check out some of build in template, such as Third person, Top down or First person mate. Basically if you want to control an actor, you only need to possess an actor with your current controller, write the code and function for receiving input inside your custom controller, then either you put the code that handling all those input inside your controller, or if you have different types of actor that will behave differently using the same input, you may want to put the handling code inside each of them actor blueprint.
