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"

Wrong child actor components reference when spawning from construction script

I have a blueprint BP_Map that depending on public size variable spawns a number of child actors BP_Region that are placed in a rectangular grid. For each BP_Region to be spawned I am creating it by Add ChildActorComponent, casting it to BP_Region to finally execute Set Paths function that will invoke several setter functions.

When new actor BP_Map is created in editor it executes flawlessly. Problem occurs when I change public size variable and construction script is run again - some regions do not update their variables. I have noticed in editor that whenever I reduce size variable new Child Actor Components are not created, instead old ones are being reused, while Add ChildActorComponent gives me reference to newly created and most importantly not spawned BP_Map actors. Setter functions are run, but not on the Actor Components present in the editor.

Is there some possibility to force spawning new actor components in construction script? is there possibility to get references to Child Actor Component that are actually used?

Best regards and thanks for your support!
