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"

A way to create an Actor Instance?

Hello,

I am curious as to know if there is a way to create instances of actors?

Kind of like how you can create a base Material, set up some public parameters, and then create instances of it, and modify the parameters to re purpose the item.

I effectively want to create a master blueprint, that contains lots of Stats, then create instances of it in the content browser, and make many modified versions, that will all update when I change the master file, much like how it works with Material instances.

Is this possible?

Thanks!

Product Version: UE 4.16

Never mind, I'm an idiot.

You do it pretty much the EXACT same way as you would create an instance of a Material. Right click the Actor Blueprint, right at the top of the list is an option: "Create Child Blueprint", does exactly what I am looking for. Hahaha.
