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"

Set material from actor reference?

I'm trying to convert an actor reference to a static mesh actor reference, or something like that so I can change the material properties. Basically I'm using sphere overlap components to detect nearby mesh walls, then making them transparent. I can do it by turning them all invisible, as the set actor hidden in game node works with arrays of actor references. However I can't find a way of editing the material of these actors. Any ideas?

If somebody else also has this issue, I got this working by using Cast to StaticMeshActor > Target Static Mesh Component > Set Material. Then in Cast To StaticMeshActor, link 'Object' to your desired one.
