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"

Attaching a Child Actor to another Child Actor's Socket does not work?


imagine the following setup:

  • You have got a Blueprint that contains 2 Child Actors (1 Skeletal Mesh and 1 Static Mesh)

  • The Static Mesh should be attached to a bone of the Skeletal Mesh (As you can see in the attached image)

  • Bug: The transform of the Static Mesh won't be updated constantly on tick and it only snaps to the socket transform in the first frame of the game

Hello polygon,

I've attempted to reproduce your issue, but the component I was attaching to my mesh was updating as expected. Are you able to reproduce this issue in a new project? If so, can you provide the exact steps that you are taking in order to reproduce the issue? It is possible that I am missing a small detail.
