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"

Lost First Person Actors in Viewport and Outliner, Need For References in Blueprints

So all of the character and player references to the game start, cameras and such, have disappeared in my outliner and view port. The only part I can see and manipulate is the player start, but even the icon for it was replaced with a "BADsize" icon. But when I go to play the level, they show up. The problem is, i need to reference these for line traces and other things in my blueprints. I don't know how to get these to show up so I can reference them. I'm really at a loss here. alt text

so what is this "FirstPersonSpongeCharacter" ? if it's not your character , what is that?

I'm sorry, i should have mentioned that that's a standalone FP camera for a different part of the scene not connected to the main player start, but the main camera that's somehow connected to the player start in the level is missing unless you play the level. That's the problem.
