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"

Loading Blueprints with ObjectLibrary

I am trying to load a set of Blueprints from a path with the object library. These Blueprints are the lowest part in the following inheritance tree:

AFurniture (C++) -> FurnitureBP (Blueprint) -> Chair, Table, Carpet (Blueprints)

All these Blueprints (Chair, Table, etc) are in the same path and I am trying to load them with the following code:

 ULibrary* ULibrary::LoadLibrary(const FString & LibraryPath, UClass * InBaseClass)
     UObjectLibrary* uol;
     uol = UObjectLibrary::CreateLibrary(InBaseClass, true, GIsEditor);
     int32 BlueprintsNumber = uol->LoadBlueprintAssetDataFromPath(LibraryPath);
     TArray<FAssetData> FurnitureAssets;
     ULibrary* NewLibrary = NewObject<ULibrary>();
     for (int32 b = 0; b < FurnitureAssets.Num(); b++) {
         UBlueprint* BluePrint = Cast<UBlueprint>(FurnitureAssets[b].GetAsset());
         UClass* FurnitureClass = BluePrint->GetClass();
         if (FurnitureClass) {
     return NewLibrary;

The problem is that I do not know how to get the proper UClass from each element. I think they are detected ok as I can call BluePrint->GetName() and get the proper names (Chair, Table, etc), but I need the UClass to be able to spawn them in game.

Is this the right way to do it?

Hey, I just had a very similar problem and found the solution! If you want to load Blueprint classes you should use ObjectLibrary->GetBlueprintsFromPath like this:

 ItemLibrary = UObjectLibrary::CreateLibrary(AItem::StaticClass(), true, GIsEditor);

And then you need to use GetObjects instead of GetAssetDataList like so:

 TArray<UBlueprintGeneratedClass *> ClassesArray;
 for (int32 i = 0; i < ClassesArray.Num(); ++i)
     UBlueprintGeneratedClass * BlueprintClass = ClassesArray[i];

Also UBlueprint's do not exist in a packaged game, this would cause a crash. Hope that helps!

I have been using the code as proposed by Fluppi393 with Shipping configurations with no issues at all. Just make sure the folder where you have your Blueprints is added to the cooking process. You can force folders to be added to the cook in the Project Settings.
