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"

Cannot set Location or Rotation of created spotlights

So i'm currently creating some spotlights and then adding them in the spotlight spawners hierarchy as well as a array on the spotlight spawner. But the issue i'm currently having is that i cannot set the rotation or the location of the created spotlights. I want to be able to move the spotlights around in the world but i'm currently unable to do so.

Here is my code.

 void ALightOrigin::BeginPlay()
 {
     Super::BeginPlay();
 
     ASpotLight* SpotLightTemp;
     SpotLightTemp = GWorld->SpawnActor<ASpotLight>(ASpotLight::StaticClass());
     SpotLightTemp->SetBrightness(Brightness);
     SpotLightTemp->AttachRootComponentToActor(this);
     SpotLights.Add(SpotLightTemp);
 
     SpotLights[0]->SetActorRelativeLocation(FVector(50.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f));
     SpotLights[0]->SetActorLocation(FVector(150.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f));
     SpotLights[0]->SetActorRotation(GetActorRotation());
 }

Neither of the set actor rotation/location seems to work for me. Am i doing something wrong here?

Is your point light set to be moveable instead of static/stationary?
