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"

Hi, im trying to make a blueprint that is an object and on interact it plays a sound. The thing is i'll have multiple ones and want to be able to change the sound in the editor after its been spawned instead of having to make a new blueprint for each and every single one. I'd appreciate any help, thanks.

Hey Alex,

You're going to want to do a few things:

  1. Make a blueprint of the object

  2. Create a variable for the sound-to-play (With whichever type you plan to use, such as sound cue)

  3. Make that variable public

  4. Create an instance of the object in your level and change the sound you want to play in the detail panel
