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"

You can make a macro in the Construction Script that does Spawn Actors. I ran into the same roadblock and used it to get around it.

Being able to do that may be a bug though, from the Answer below it looks like that would have undesirable side effects

Hey Satheesh,

The construction script is run every time you change a property or move it around so unless you manually destroy the actor you would end up with a large amount of actors. There are plans in the future to have some similar ability. As of right now you will have to manually add the actors you want to start with in the construction script or run some setup in the event graph.

Best Regards,

Ryan
