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"

Spawning a thing(Static Mesh) with Blueprint

Sorry, guys, but i'm a really newbie with Unreal Engine. I'm doing a little game (school's work) and i want to spawn a box, dog, car or anything else in a specific time (it doesn't mean that i want spawn random stuff, just one thing actually). Aaaand... that's the problem: I don't know how. I've tried some tutorials on internet, but nothing helped me. (i'm really dense sometimes) If possible, could you teach me how to spawn an object without pressing anything and in a specific time, please? Spawn repeatedly, of course.

Product Version: UE 4.8

You can use Add Static Mesh Component node. I dont understand how exactly you want to spawn it but Timers or Get Game Time in Seconds node should help i suppose.

That's what i did. And worked. I couldn't express myself well, but this is what i wanted: an event to play/start the spawn and another to keep on it.

btw Thanks :D alt text
