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 do I referance an actor from another BP?


I have a AI actor setup and I have a pickup item. I have setup the pickup item with an overlap event. It checks the overlap between the player character and when it overlaps another cast to is called. This cast to is the AI actor as I want to change the material of it when the player overlaps with the pickup item.

On the cast to AI actor I do not know what to reference it as... what do I put int the execution pin... get player controller, get owner, get player controller, get AI controller... what do I put in this pin?

Cast is simple. Is the object you put in a ThingYouCastTo. Let me know if you figure out the rest for yourself ;P
