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 add custom scene component to actor at runtime?

I have created a custom USceneComponent. This component has a mesh attached to it. In my pawn I need to dynamically create instances of this scene component attached to the RootComponent. I have attempted to do this using:

 UCustomSceneComponent*Object= NewObject <UCustomSceneComponent>(this,UCustomSceneComponent::StaticClass());
 Object->RegisterComponentWithWorld(this->GetWorld());
 Object->SetWorldLocation(this->GetActorLocation());
 Object->AttachTo(RootComponent);

The issue is that while I can see the scene component in the editor, the child mesh does not appear. If I try to add the scene component in a blueprint using the addComponent node, I can see the mesh. How can I replicate the functionality of this node in c++?
