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"

Spawning Actors at Mouse Location with set Z

I want to spawn an actor at mouse location BUT has a Z value of 500. When I spawn at cursor normally, the actor will spawn at the end of the vector (tested using a debug line). However, I want the actor to spawn where the vector would intersect the z=500 plane. Anybody have any ideas?

I believe there is a blueprint node for that, detecting where a vector intersects with an imaginary plane, but you know what would be super easy? make a big invisible plane with collision set to block nothing but traces and i think your cursor trace will hit it and tada! Hopefully.
