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"

How can I switch between meshes in construction script ?

This is my setup:

What I'm trying to achieve is to be able to choose different set of meshes using a drop down list. At the moment if I change the blueprint to Door_001 nothing is happening. Can someone help please ?

Did you try the "Switch on int"?

Then you Set a integer variable to each mesh

Use "Select" Node, it a pure node which let you translate one type to another without copying same code over and over again

I don't really understand what I should do, could you post an example please ?

I found the select node but I'm not sure what to do with it, to explain better what I'm trying to achieve, is the following:

I have 3 separate blueprints (the wall and the three doors). I want to have just one and be able to change it into the others via a drop down list like in the picture. Not at runtime, before building lights and all that. In this example I have only 3 version so it's fine anyway but I have dozens of options and sometimes finding the right asset can take a while. If this was doable it would save me a lot of time building my levels. Thank you for your time !
