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"

Lighting in BP spawned from SpawnActor on Android

So I am running into an issue and I don't know a path forward to solving it.

I am working on a prototype that is basically a dungeon builder. There is a base blueprint room that has the basic room in it and a dozen or so alternate room blueprints that inherit from that and then they are spawned in a random order, repeating etc.

The issue I am running into is that I don't seem to be able to get any of the normal lighting techniques to work properly from within a blueprint.

I've tried static point lights, directional light, emissive materials and while they all look great run on the PC, they tend to not work at all rendered in the mobile simulator not on the hardware device it self.

If I drop one of the BPs directly into the scene it lights correctly, but once it is created from SpawnActor, it doesn't.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
