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"

Actor Components are used for reusable behaviour and do not have a constructor. They also do not need/have a viewport.

What you're looking for is most likely a Blueprint Actor.

As Everynone stated you are definitely looking for Blueprint Actor. Give that a try and let us know if that works. I believe the basic tutorial only touches on Actor and not Actor Component. But I see where there might have been confusion :)
