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"

Why doesn't scaling an actor with child actors work

I have a blueprint which contains 4 Child Actors for components. When I spawn this actor, I set its world scale:


Where NewBuilding is the just spawned AActor*

On my existing actors this works fine. However, I have just made a composite actor blueprint using, as I said, child actors for components. The scale is correctly set if you look in the details panel in the editor. However, the object is not scaled accordingly.

Weirder still, if you change these these numbers (say set the scale X to 1.0 and then back to 10) it correctly scales (in all three axis!)

It also still happens if you use SetActorRelativeScale3D.

OK the problem seem to be caused by the fact some of the actors contained a static mesh component with its mobility set to Static. I don't know why this wasn't causing the single component BPs to fail though... I'll post this as an answer unless someone can come up with something more informative.
