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.
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
