  • 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"

If I understand correctly, you want to Add an animated skeletal mesh for "reloading" to the first person shooter.

If that is the case, open the first person shooter character blueprint.

On the left - under Components, add a skeletal mesh under the existing one (and drag-drop it to set the original as a Parent) - Select the Skeletal Mesh for your Reload Animation figure. -- Turn Off Visibility on this mesh for now. alt text

Using the main menu - Edit Project Settings - > Input, and add an input key(s) for Reloading. alt text .

Now you just need to swap the Visibility of each Mesh and play the animation whenever the player reloads. alt text


You'll want to add some checks to ensure reload is an option, and didn't just complete, and to prevent playing it at a full run (unless you want that to be an option) etc.

But this should get you started down the right track.
