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"

Get Role and owning network in blueprint

Why is there only a 'get remote role' function?

Sometimes I want to execute something in actor BP only when role==ROLE_Authority. I think that's fairly reasonable. Not sure what I'm missing here. Is there a different / more convenient approach to do this?

Thanks in advance.

The role itself is not exposed in blueprints, but there exists a "HasAuthority" actor blueprint node that does return exactly Role == ROLE_Authority.

Thanks for the answer and you are right.

For this particular question though I believe what I needed was node "IsLocallyControlled". I didn't know the right question at the time. Just in case anyone sees this and needs the same thing.
