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"

Attach component to cable end inside BP

It looks like I cant attach a moveable staticmesh to the end of a cable within Blueprint, unlike attaching objects to the end in the world where it just works.

Is there any other way of doing this without any additional actors or is it not possible?

I am stuck with the same question right now. Why I can not do the same cable end attachment in vehicle Blueprint, as i can easily do in World, in level blueprint? Thank you for eventual answer.

In the construction script use 'attach to component' and put CableEnd as the socket name
