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"

Spawned Actor Removal / Replace

Hey Guys,

I have a slight issue which I hope I can get some help with. I want to spawn objects via buttons which I have working. Basically if I click the same button twice that object will spawn twice on top of each other.

I guess I am stuck on the type of if statement I would need to check whether that actor has already been spawned and either leave it or delete.

Appreciate any help.

By the looks of it, it looks like you are spawning an actor, but as soon as you are destroying it, which makes it look as it nothing is happening. This script will make the button spawn the actor, and then destroy it on the next click. Hopefully, that is what you want to happen.
