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"

UPROPERTY not saved to NonEditor Build (shipping/debug)

Hi guys, i'm creating some variables on my plugin which works with no problems until creating a Game only build

     UPROPERTY(EditAnywhere,BlueprintReadWrite, Category = "Paper ZD")
     class UPaperZDAnimBP *AnimationBlueprint;
     UPROPERTY(EditAnywhere, BlueprintReadWrite, Category = "Paper ZD")
         int myint; //TEST

So, maybe i'm wrong about this but, aren't this properties supposed to retain their values when going on Shipping build? the custom UObject are set as null

So even if on editor, after saving, i have not null variables... on the shipping/debuggame builds this are null/zero.

Am I wrong on thinking that this properties should have retained their values?


This happens only with any UPROPERTY that is a custom UObject... they are not being deserialized.. they just return as null... If i put a normal actor, component etc.. they are serialized or saved... but i have absolutely no idea how can i fix this issue...

This is because Blueprints aren't loaded at packaged builds.. and so is everything that is a child or has an Outer Blueprint Object on the package.

The solution is, if you need a certain object on editor and packaged build, don't give them a Blueprint as the Outer object, instead you can give them the Outermost object, which is a UPackage that's always loaded
