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"

How would I convert a constant to a parameter?

So I'm new to Blueprints/Scripting, but been looking at some tutorials etc.


At that point he pressed "1" and clicked. How did he get that to come up? When I do so, a similar constant pops up, but it is green. I want the blue one.

Thanks. alt text

If you want a parameter of a float, right click and add 'scalar parameter'; this is the same thing as a vector one paramater. :)

Oh I was confused as why the colors different, his being blue and mine a bright green. So they are they same?

Well usually green means parameter (can be edited in material instances) but blue is just a value (always the same). :)
