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"

Hello, Drake

A variable of APlayerState type is contained in every class that derives from APawn (including ACharacter). Thus, in your Character class, you can use the following (assuming your PlayerState class derives from APlayerState class):

 PlayerState = MyPlayerStateObject;

Please note, that PlayerState field has APlayerState type, so in case you need to access some functionality which is implemented in your custom PlayerState class, you need to perform a cast to the type of your custom class.

Hope this helped!
