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 spawn different actor/character(s)?

So I'm working on a multiplayer Gamemode blueprint and I want to be able to find a way to spawn a different character(s). Like for an example, currently the blueprint is spawning the default "ThirdPersonCharacter" because I chose it to do so. But lets say if I were to import another character that I would want to use, how will it be possible for me to spawn that new character without having to always go back and change the spawn actor blueprint all the time in order for the blueprint to have the ability to spawn any characters from my roster? I need to find a solution since the project I'm working on will have different characters that I've been working on. Thanks for your time.

Note- This is a class blueprint and I'm using a spawn players function.

the simple answer would be to right click the class pin and select promote to variable.
