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"

How to add a meshes to multiple sockets quickly?

So I have a ceiling with several hundred sockets on multiple locations to add lamps. Now my question is how do I add a single mesh type to all these sockets without doing it one by one by hand?

I've tried blueprinting but the only thing I managed to do was to spawn them on the sockets in runtime. I rather have them appear in the editor so I can still tweak some.

Have you tried using the construction script in blueprints? You could probably get by with copy/pasting the nodes from (I assums) BeginPlay to the construction script.

Yes, I have and I can get all the locations of the sockets but I can only generate one mesh. I can't figure out how to spawn a mesh for each socket in the construction script.
