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"

How to create a Chest/Container System from the Inventory Drag&Drop System!

Hello, I'm currently working on a Survival Game and i recently integrated the Drag&Drop Inventory System from the UE4 Youtube channel (uploaded live stream 1 of 3)

and it works just fine, but I'm having problems adding an external Chest/Container System, that basically is/should just be a secondary Inventory, but with the Itemdata stored in an Actor (this isn't integrated since I wanted it to work first before I made it more complicated than it has to be for now, so its just a secondary Inventory). But it simply does not transfer the Data from the Main Inventory to the Secondary/Container Inventory, even though I've checked/changed the Code for the last 43 Hours (23 + 20 hours in the last 3 days) and it should just work fine...But it doesn't, so I was wondering if someone tried something similiar and maybe there is something I'm missing.

Or if there is someone out there who has more experience with these Systems than I have, since I've started programming only 3 month ago (actually 2 Years ago, but just basic codes with Unity 5. My first try to make a game was a total disaster. 3 month ago i started with UE4 and BP scripting). If the integration would require me to implement a totally different Inventory System I probably would do it, even though I'd prefer not to change it, but I really need a Chest System.

I hope I did cover every detail about the problem, If not, I will try to edit it if you need more information about the Problem. I will probably check this page every 30 minutes for the rest of the Day, so you dont have to wait too long if I missed somthing. Also I'm using UE4.12, basically the latest official version(not beta). Also there are no Errorwarnings or anything similiar. There is literally no tutorial on an Inventory Chest System on the Internet, just showcasing finished Systems.Also if you know how to make a more efficient Inventory System with Chests "included" I would appreciate it, if you could show it, or just some basics for it to work. Sorry if this isn't written very polite, English isn't my Motherlanguage(Mother tongue?). Thank you very much.
