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"

Make light only visible to owner


I have a character moving in relative dark areas. I added a light to my Player BP to lighten up near things around my charater.

Unfortunately the light is replicated to all clients. How can I stop that?

I'm not sure you can activate a light only on one client, unless you spawn it locally on that specific client.

And how do I do that? I tried following: Spawn on BeginPlay in my PlayerBP. Then it gets spawned everywhere regardless of the "OnlyRelevantToOwner" property I set. Then the ControllerBP: it has no "OnPossess" event, so I do not know where I should spawn the light and where to remove when I switch the pawn.

Try spawning the light in a custom event, call it ClientSpawn and set the event's replication to Run On Owning Client:
