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"

Save actors in editor


I am extending the editor, to create a wave editor for a shoot'em up game. I made a viewport, in which I can spawn and move the actors where I want. But, after moving them or editing their properties (it might be a property somewhere in the components), I would like to save theses actor datas to load them at runtime (using theses actors as templates). But I do not know how to make it.

Actually, I just fill an array of actors in the editor, but when I want to save, I got the issue with dependencies on private objects. Perhaps, there is a way to break theses dependencies before saving ?

Well, the best solution I found was to make my wave asset inherit from UWorld (setting up the UWorld almost like the engine does with its UWorldFactory). From here, I can populate the world of my asset with the actors I want to save (using SpawnActor). With that setting, the save system work well and my actor are correctly saved.

3 days to find that... Hope it will help someone else.
