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"

Attaching a Blueprint Class to my Character, Changes the Visual of that Class

I have created a Blueprint Actor Class, and inside I have placed 2 geometry meshes, a particle effect and a Trigger Volume (Collision Sphere).

I also created a socket attached to the right hand of my character.

The goal here is to attach the Blueprint Actor when my character presses the Use Action. I'm doing this with the following blueprint, in my Character's Blueprint:

The problem is that when the item attaches to my Character, it changes visually. In the image below you can see how the item looks before is attached (on the left) and after (on the right): alt text

Both Meshes and the Particles change dramatically.

Last, I don't if it matters, but in my content browser the thumbnail shows for some reason the visual that is attached to the player, even though when you edit it, it shows the torch. Check the image:

Any thoughts? What I'm doing wrong?

I found out what was the issue.

Inside the torch blueprint components, I didn't have a Root Component. Everything was getting the scale from a mesh that was part of that said blueprint.

After reconstructing the torch but this time with a Scene Root as the Parent Component and everything else as a child, both issues were resolved.

Snap to target copies scaling information too. Try checking the scale information of the Torch socket in Persona (skeleton).
