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 affect blueprint of only one actor placed in the level


I would need to find a way to change material of an actor, but so that only one actor changes, not them all. In the script, the material of the actor changes when cursor is over it. The problem is, this changes the material of all the actors placed in the level, while I need that only the actor changes that the cursor points. Attached is a screenshot of what I have tried but with no luck so far (the target cube self reference did not work). I also thought it might be done somehow through the actors construction script > local variable, but have not been able to figure it out.
