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"

SpawnActorFromClass not using Correct Scale


Setup: Main BP (Player Character) - Child Actor Within Main BP spawns a projectile using GetWorldLocation.

The Spawned projectile has the correct location and rotation however the scale is incorrect.

I'm using the Spawn Actor From Class node. It is spawning an actor which is a sphere at 16cm in diameter.

The scale is correct if I drop the mesh / BP into the world.

However when I Spawn an actor from class the scale is incorrect and is around 4x bigger.

I have been through all my BPs and meshes to make sure that all the scales are set to 1.0, So the problem lies within the Spawn Actor From Class node even though it is displaying the output scale as 1.0.

Any information on this would be amazing as It has been racking mine and other's heads for hours.

Did you reimport mesh or changed import scale?

The problem occurred even before I imported a mesh and was using a standard sphere component.

But I have tried new meshes, new BPs, the problem seems to lay around the SpawnActor of class I Think.

I have the same problem. Transform of a parent component won't apply to child objects when spawned by BP - spawn actor from class. Drag & drop to a scene applies the transform correctly.
