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"

Removing output from interface function


  1. Create an interface with a function

  2. List item. Add an output to that function

  3. Add that interface to a blueprint

  4. Remove the output from the interface's function

  5. A bug occurs which prevents compiling

I've been able to fix it by removing the interface from blueprints that use it, then deleting all bugged functions within the interface, recreating them and then adding the interface again.

Still encountering this (version 4.10.2) - just for renaming an output variable inside a blueprint interface function.

Given that readding the interface (breaking everything which uses it) seems to be the only solution, my current recommendation is that for whatever functionality you are using the blueprint interface, contain it all within a separate function, so that the process of readding is simply connecting up the pins between the function and the interface in each blueprint using it (which is still a massive amount of work).

Outside of that, either lock down every variable and every variable's name in advance of using the function, or avoid using blueprint interfaces entirely.

Restarting the editor seems to fix being unable to readd a previously removed BPI.

This issue has been marked as fixed for 4.11. Give it a shot in the 4.11 Preview, as it should be resolved in that version.
