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"

Is there a way to create a blueprint and get a reference to it without spawning it?

This is probably a suggestion unless I just missed something, but I think it would be useful to implement 2 things.

1) Be able to create a blueprint from a class like the spawn actor from class function, but not actually have to spawn it in the world. Basically data classes.

and 2) Be able to declare data blueprints that would be similar to structs. There could be many uses for having a blueprint that holds certain types of data.

If this functionality exists I'd like to know about it.

Also i'm talking about doing this straight through blueprint without having to make C++ structs and classes to achieve these goals

Blueprint can go beyond it's object management system (aka UObject) so you can't make initiation-less classes

You could make a class to keep your data, initiate it to some class generally available (like AGameMode? depends what that data is)
