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"

How to make my charcter switch meshes?

Ok. So I have made my 2 charcters with their animations. I would like to make it when the charcter touches a certain cube I made, the charcter switches to another one. And if they touch it again, it would switch to the other charcter. Is this possible? If so how can I do this or can you link me a tutorial? Thank you so much!

Oh, it's definitely possible. Almost anything is possible in Unreal. ;-)

For an easy Blueprint example, take a look at this guide in the Unreal Engine docs. It covers the Possess method in the PlayerController class. Basically, as long as your characters already exist in the level as Pawns (meaning, any class deriving from the APawn class), you can call Possess on them and your PlayerController actor will take control of that character.

Hope that helps!
