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"

Blueprint Variables Map within a Map?

Hello. I am attempting to create a versatile minimap for my 3D user generated maze. The maze blueprint takes the width, height, and length of the maze (defined by the user) and fills each space with a random room out of twelve options. I got the maze to work the way it is intended and I'm moving onto the map. I want the map to display the layout of the Z layer of the maze that the player is currently in, and to change as the player ascends/descends. I figured the best way to do this would be with map variables. I have a blueprint structure for the info of each room (X position, y position, class, and reference), then I have another blueprint structure for the maze level with an Integer (level number) and a map variable for the room info struct. I would like to have a third structure containing a map variable of the maze level struct in a similar way as the map of the info struct. My issue is that when selecting what container I want the variable to be, the only option is an array (the 'Set' and 'Map' options are grayed out). If anyone has a simpler way to do this or a way to get a map in a map please help.
