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"

Referencing a variable from the level blueprint in another blueprint?

I have a bool in my level blueprint. I want to be able to check the value of this bool in my character blueprint.

Blueprint interfaces, which is what I would normally use, don't seem to be supported in the level blueprint (there is no interface category in the Blueprint Props of a level blueprint).

Blueprint communications don't seem to work either. The moment I add in the level blueprint as a class variable I get an error preventing me from saving the blueprint.alt text

Is level blueprint communication not supported or am I missing something here?

Check out Communication level in Content Examples. Maybe you can get around by calling an event inside the Level Blueprint that will itself call an event inside your blueprint which would pass that bool as a parameter.

Good suggestion. I checked out that level and it had a lot of helpful examples. It made me realize I could just do a cast to my character class after my overlap trigger goes off. Thanks!
