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"

Destroying an actor and replacing it (same location) - Widget

Hey guys!

I'm looking to destroy an actor and replace it with another. It's an object which the player can spawn within the world, at a chosen location. I want it to be destroyed on the click of a button, and I'm attempting to use a widget for this purpose.

As I'm pretty new to widgets and whatnot, I'm wondering, how can I get the object / blueprint actor to communicate with the widget for this purpose? I know I need to destroy the actor, replace it with another, and so forth. But how do I maintain the location of the new spawn, for example?

My current tests have all resulted in some problems, such as the new spawn appearing at the start position or off the map and I'm almost certain I'm missing something rather simple here.

Any help is appreciated =)
