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 add actor properties that appear only in editor?

How to add property to an actor that exists and can be changed only from editor?

So far I tried putting the properties ( UChildActorComponent* ) inside #if WITH_EDITORONLY_DATA

 #if WITH_EDITORONLY_DATA
 
     UPROPERTY(EditAnywhere, Category = QoL)
         TSubclassOf<AEquipmentActor> EquipmentActorClass;

     UPROPERTY(VisibleDefaultsOnly)
         UChildActorComponent* QoLActor;
 #endif

and in constructor

 #if WITH_EDITORONLY_DATA
 
     this->QoLActor = CreateDefaultSubobject<UChildActorComponent>(TEXT("Quality of Life Actor"));
     this->QoLActor->SetupAttachment(RootComponent);
     this->QoLActor->SetChildActorClass(this->EquipmentActorClass);
     
 #endif

it can be seen and changed in editor, if you try to access it from outside #if WITH_EDITORONLY_DATA or #if WITH_EDITOR it fails to compile, everything seems fine

The problem is, the blueprint is serialized and the component is still there when the game is packaged
