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"

Convert Actors from scene to another Actor as ChildActorComponents

Hello everyone I'm working with procedural dungeon generator. I have dungeon generator BP, which is places selected number of rooms. Every room - it's a blueprint, child of BM_MasterRoom, which is conssist of another BlueprintActor's (as child actor component) - BP_TileGenerator. This actor consist of a one single plane mesh, and via a lot of settings can select random material for himself. To make new room, (child of BP_MasterRoom), I need to create this actor, then add inside of him a lot of ChildActors component, and set them all to BP_TileGenerator class (in this way I can made desired architecture for each room). Everything works fine, I have nice rooms with pre-made architecture and random material selection. But here is the problem: it's taking a lot of time to make it via blueptint editor. So I want to place all my BP_TileGenerator actors on level, change settings, then select them all and press magic button, which will create actor, and will place all selected actors to him as ChildActor Components. Can I make something similar via bleprints? via C++? How? Thank you. .
