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"

what do you mean grab his mesh and put it in different bp? are your trying to create another character using the same model or are you just trying to reference the mesh from another bp?

if your trying to reference the mesh from another actor then theres a ton of ways to do that but it depends on the situation.

so youll need to provide some more info, you should provide more information when asking questions anyway as you didnt explain mush here.

Im trying to reference the mesh from another actor

ok well whats the situation / context?

theres line traces, theres public variables, overlap events, sorting, etc.. like i said theres many ways to go about getting a reference but it depends on your situation. oh also you need a reference to do a cast so we need to work out the reference issue first.

Nevermind I figured It out, I went to the level blueprint and created a reference to the actor I was using

if it works for you then guess thats that.

routing all things through the level bp isnt how i would do it. its more work and it severely limits the reuseability of your actors and scripts. but if its how you want to go im not one to argue its your game and your decision.

thats a bot. they usually post spam links but sometimes they screw up and instead of putting nonsense in a question title they end up making comments.
