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"

Alternative to .csv data tables in blueprint

Embarrassing question from a non-programmer: I want to store the player's actions in the game along with other variable data -- but can't figure out how to do this with Blueprints.
1. I imported a History.csv file after making the matching struct but from what I can see in forums etc., new rows can't be added.
2. When I make an array, it seems to be only a list (row number and text, e.g.) 3. plus I can't figure out how to see what's in it when the game isn't running -- which is easy with a data table. 4. If I create a variable based on the HistoryStruct, that seems to work -- does it? 5. but I don't know how to see what's in there -- which is easy in a data table -- 6. and I can't use the Add node to add a new row to a the variable based on HistoryStruct. 7. I also want to be able to filter the table so only those rows appear with a variable's text contained in a Keywords column.

So what's the best way to do this? Is there a way to make the equivalent of a data table that's not an imported .csv file? One I can add rows to, filter, modify data, etc.?

Much appreciated, hive mind!

Someone posted an answer to this question -- use an array of structs -- and after I learned how to work with them, I saw that answer was exactly right. I came back here to thank them, but the answer has disappeared. So thank you, someone! Much appreciated!
