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 to retrieve actor from Editor with PIE-actor instance?

Hi folks, I am working on my UnrealEd-Plugin and for a new feature I need to find an actor in the editor world (NOT PIE) with its replica from the PIE-world.

As far as I can tell all objects in the editor will be get replicated when entering play mode. That is, having a valid actor instance during play mode does not mean its valid when leaving play mode. Now I want to be able to get the replicas prefrab (actor) from the editor world. How would I do that?

Right now my solution is:

  1. when entering play mode: save the actors (the replica) name (Actor->GetFName())

  2. when leaving play mode: find the actor (the prefab) by the replicas name via TActorIterator and GEditor->GetWorldContext()->World()

This somehow works, but seems very fragile. How instance when changing the actors name through the level hierarchy I wont be able to find the actor.

Is there a better way to achieve what I am trying to do here?

Cheers, Tobs.
