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"

question about initial camera setup

I'm currently trying to setup an RTS camera similar to the one in the strategy game example, and I'm running into some problems that I hope the UE4 gods can help answer =)

1) what is a camera boom that I see being created in character classes? and what does springarmcomponent do? Do I even need this if I'm trying to create an RTS camera, since the camera has nothing to do with the pawn?

2) player controller contains a playercameramanager, how on earth do I setup the initial camera view of the game. is it possible to create a camera actor on the scene and somehow attach it to the playercameramanager?

3) is it possible to have playercameramanager contain multiple cameras and switch them depending on the situation?

Thanks in advance!
