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"

Camera wont follow pawn when simulating gameplay

I am in 3rd person gamemode and I created a pawn blueprint whereupon I have a custom static mesh. I changed the default pawn to be my custom pawn "SpaceShip" (overriding ThirdPersonGameMode), but when I play it in the viewport, I don't have control over my pawn, I have control over the old default pawn. When I delete the old default pawn and play it, the camera zooms in on the floor somewhere and doesn't seem to be at all attached to my blueprint. Its also worth noting that I created a camera for my pawn which is obviously not being used. What am I doing wrong?
