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"

Can not get player to spawn in new map

Hello, I recently got a new map from the marketplace. I am looking to make this new map the default map. I am using the third person template. I went into the project settings and changed the default map to the new map. I then loaded the new map, went to the world settings and changed the game mode to the one used in the default template map. I then hit play but all it does is place the camera in some random place on the map and I cannot move around. Can anyone help me fix this so i can get the default character to spawn in on this new map? Is there something I am missing?

As a side note I place a player start and an instance of the default third person character and that did not change anything. I still get spawned in the same location every time with no camera control.

Product Version: UE 4.9

If you want to use default spawn system don't place character. Check if you set default pawn in your game mode, if you don't have custrom game mode you can set it in project settings. Check "Output Log" (in window manu) if there no error from SpawnActor function, it prints log if it can't spawn something, maybe there other useful information showing up in log

Alternativly, in your own GameMode you can spawn and possess actor on BeginPlay and see what happens
