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"

You seem to know what to do, why don't you try it? Clearly you want to spawn new actor (dont forget to change possesion in playercontroller) on same location and then delete old actor. You can also change mesh if you want, but best for that would be blueprint code that can refrence to mesh a lot easier, in mesh components you got those functions:

Those C++ only function so you need to create your own function that expose that in to blueprints
