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"

Is it possible to create new actor components?

Is it possible to create a new component that can be added to a blueprint representing an actor under the "Components" tab? Either C++ or Blueprint extensions would be fine for me. I would like to be able to do something like add a component to the root and have it perform some functionality simply by being attached and in turn replacing the "is a" parent extensions I've been making for many of my actors.

If you want to add actor as component you can use child actor component

If you want to create new components you can do that in C++ by extending UActorComponent class and add meta=(BlueprintSpawnableComponent) specifier in UCLASS() to make i visible in blueprint component editor
