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"

Major issue with Blueprints placed in levels becoming damaged when editing parent class

I've run into a significant issue whereby I have a BP with a parent (which also has a parent) placed in a level. This BP has a number of variables that can be modified in the editor. Whenever make changes to one of the parents the version in the level "sometimes" silently resets all it's properties and refuses to update them. IE: They appear to be set correctly in the editor but in game they are reset to default values.

The only way to remedy this appears to be deleting the actor BP from the level and placing it again.

This is fine for a simple case but I'm really concerned about future development. If I were to have 10's or 100's of these and needed to make a change to the base class to add a new feature, or fix a bug, I would lose all my data possibly requiring days of effort to repair.

Can anyone help here? I'm at the point where I'm not sure I can responsibly continue development without understanding how I can avoid this issue.

Hello Ook,

I ran into something like this as well, not via "parenting", just that at times, a blue print will hang onto values, or reset them on a whim it seems. Will be watching this question for sure.
