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"

Can you automatically assign landscape paint layer via blueprint?


I was wondering if its possible to change the landscape paint layer via blueprint. I''ll try and keep it simple.


  • I have a game where the player can place houses on the map.

  • The map is a 'landscape' terrain with mutiple paint layers.

  • I would like to automatically change the paint layer around the area that the house is placed by the player (by blueprint?)

  • This doesn't have to happen at run time, it can happen the next time the player loads the game.

I've attached a gloriously detailed diagram to help :)

Thanks in advance,

I saw something kind of like this in a tutorial on how to make spray paintable materials
