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"

Possible to move actors ingame like we do in editor simulate?


i like simulate in editor viewport, we can posses or unposses our pawn so i can move in my world and click on actors and translate them to see if they react properly when entering in a trigger box for example

can we do the same in standalone game for debuging purpose? is there a console option that enable me to fly around my world and click on actor and move them like we do in editor?

There is not a way to display the editor move/rotate/scale widgets. The options are really:

  1. Easy - Create a debug UMG UI for adjusting properties of selected items using spinBoxes/textinputs (Must make a selection system as well for any of these)

  2. Medium - Implementing shortcut keys like CTRL + Mouse Drag (mimicking Editor hotkeys if you want).

  3. Hard - Create your own widgets or actors to act as in-world widgets and drag them around to change Actor positions

  4. Epic - Hack the Editor widgets to work in game. This is an overall bad idea because there is a lot that goes on under the hood and a bunch of dependencies you probably aren't prepared for. Without a bunch of work it also prevents you from cooking your game.

If you have any specific questions about an option, ask away!
