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 or add a Static Mesh Component Reference

In the Set Static Mesh function the "Target" needs to be a Static Mesh Component Reference, as opposed to a Static Mesh Reference in the "New Mesh" field.

I'm totally confused; what is the component and how do I get a mesh into that field? Can I read up on this entire thing somewhere?

You can use Set Static Mesh function to dynamically set a mesh to your component in Blueprint. For example if you have a Static Mesh Component named "Sphere", you can drag and drop it into you Blueprint graph, take a wire from created variable and choose Set Static Mesh function.

PS: If you want to add a static mesh dynamically to your BP, you should use Add Static Mesh Component instead.
