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"

SetActorTransform returns true but no effect

I am calling SetActorTransform and it returns true, but the actor instance of the object in the scene is not moving. Any ideas why it would return true without effect like a NOP? Do I need to set the permission or something? This is a C++ project not blueprints.

AStaticMeshActor* mesh;

FTransform transform = mesh->GetTransform();

// concatenate onto transform

Is your actor set to Moveable?

Yeah that was the problem, thank you. The function should have return false if movable was not set, is what I was thinking. But it was returning true. I'm not sure why that is expected behavior.
