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"

Pawn does not spawn

I created a new blank project with starter content and made a new pawn blueprint, just very simple for VR. I then made a new gamemode and set it in the world settings as well as project settings. The gamemode has the reference to my pawn. There is also a playerstart in the level. But whenever I hit play no pawn gets spawned. When I however choose any of the default editor UE4 pawns they all work fine. Is this a new bug in 4.13 or what could I be doing wrong?

Product Version: UE 4.13

Found the bug, when I have a skeleton mesh in the pawn which has collision set on with the object type being WorldStatic it just refuses to spawn it without any error message. I would have changed the object type at some point but WorldStatic is just the default setting.

Hi Davision,

I'm a bit confused. Are you still experiencing an error? If so, what steps can I take to reproduce this on my end?
