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"

Compiling blueprint spawns extra child actor

I have a pawn in my world that has a child actor attached to it, as can be seen in the following screenshot:

My problem is that whenever I compile my blueprints (the weapon, or it's projectile), UE4 hangs for a second and then creates a copy of the child actor in the world for each pawn I have in the world. The following screenshot shows that I have 2 pawns, so when I compile a blueprint it creates 2 copies of the child actors in the world.

It's not that annoying, but if I forget about it for a while when working, I can easily have a hundred extra actors that I have to delete because they keep spawning and I don't know what is causing it.

Any help will be much appreciated!

try checking the construction script in one of the blueprints? That one gets run when you click compile
