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"

Garbage Collection with Variables (Blueprints)

Quick question! I would like to save all the items in a player's inventory in their loaded object actor state (as opposed to classes or data structures). For example, if I have a sword object, I would like to have multiple permutations of that object (enchantments, enhancements, etc.). I realize I could go through and expose on spawn all of the variables that determine those features and set them on run time, but I suspect it would be easier to just store an array of actor objects as my players inventory instead. My question is, will that array get garbage collected eventually? Am I safe in storing an array of actors in my character? Thanks!
