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"

Why can't I edit the value of an array of actor ?

Hello. I'm trying to reference every actors I create in an array so I could use it to spawn objects then but when I try to edit the variable it says "Editing this value is not allowed", I didn't put the variable in the blueprint yet so I don't understand why couldn't I be able to edit it ? Thank you

You must add them during runtime.

AActor* is the underlying type and it is a pointer. Since it is not a simple data type the potential exists that you could try and reference something in the Pre-PIE / Pre-Game world that would not exist in PIE, or does not exist until PIE.

To reduce chances of errors like this (which would crash the Editor to desktop), you are encouraged/required to add the AActor* elements after game time starts.


After game start, use the appropriate Array nodes to add the actors you want to the array.
