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"

There are many ways to move an Actor, but it all really depends on how you want to move your character. Do you want him to just be wildly thrown from his previous location to another? If so, SetActorLocation or Teleport is great for you. Do you want the character to move to the location over time? If so, you will have to interpolate to the final location; or, in other words, you will need to move the character to a new point, each frame, until the character reaches its final destination over a fixed period of time. This process, specifically in Blueprint, is more heavily explored in this question.
