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"

Do I need to create a camera in FPS character blueprint?


I am working on an FPS game and I was wondering if I needed to create a camera in the character blueprint while I have one in the controller blueprint that's working perfectly.

If I do, why?

While player controller does not replicate the Character does. So if you ever intend to allow spectating or replays? Might be best to remove camera from PC and instead use the Character which has replicated movement by default.

Also, if your character ever does something that could affect camera movement or visibility? It will be much harder and messy to try cast to.
