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"

Blueprint actor forces player to interact with last instance of bp placed before interacting with other instances.

I've created this blueprint that checks to see if a player is overlapping its collision component and if the player overlaps the component then they are able to pick up the blueprint/object in the game. That works fine but the problem occurs when i place more than one instance of that blueprint into the game world and as i overlap the component of one of the blueprints at random, i am not able to pick up the object, instead i am forced to look for the last placed instance of that blueprint and upon finding an picking up that last instance, i would have to find the second last instance placed which becomes the last placed instance and this goes on until there is no instance of that blueprint left in the world. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance. Link to the problem shown on video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dPY3gXhX2R4

Hi NanoTheGamer,

I just tested a similar setup in 4.14.1 but I couldn't get your results. Could you provide a screenshot or two showing your blueprint setup?

Part of the issue maybe the setup in Screenshot #3. You are destroying the Stone Pickup bp and then attempting to cast to the character and set variables afterwards. Once an actor is destroyed, anything after that node will not be executed. Try moving the Destroy Actor to the end of that execution string.

If that doesn't correct the issue, could you provide a small test version and I'll see if I can dig into it a bit more.
