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"

Change Default Actor Class used for Drag and Drop of Assets

I would like to override the default class used for drag and drop in the editor for Static Meshes.

Right now when you drag and drop a Static Mesh asset into the scene it will create a StaticMeshActor using that static mesh asset.

I want to use a C++ Class which inherits from StaticMeshActor, let's call it MyStaticMeshActor and make MyStaticMeshActor the default class for Static Mesh assets that are added to the scene using drag and drop operations.

As it is now, I have to add MyStaticMeshActor to the scene and select the static mesh I wish to use from the properties, this also has the disadvantage of having the default name being MyStaticMeshActor#, which makes for more work in renaming each actor used.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
