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"

Camera in PlayerController or Character?

So first I made a character blueprint and simply added yaw/pitch input for mouse rotation (No camera in this blueprint). Then I wanted to line trace but was getting inaccurate results probably due to camera. So I added a camera in the character blueprint but it has no set yaw/pitch. How can I control it? Also, whats the point of having a camera in the char blueprint or player controller.

try to create a new project with templates, like first person template, third person, etc. You´ll be able to see how they setup the controllers and cameras.

The point is that a character without a camera is blind, everything works based on camera...

I understand that, but if there is no camera in the character blueprint then the default one in playercontroller is used

probably because the player camera is inherited from the controller, isn´t it?
