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"

Paper2d unable to see sprite after spawn in code

I am unable to see in the game spawned actors with paper 2d sprites when they are spawned, if I eject out of the game and edit properties the property suddenly shows. I've attempted to try and edit properties post spawning. All of the properties are initialised in a blueprint.

Before editing a property when actor is spawned. alt text

After editing a property when actor is spawned. alt text

This is the code that spawns it - apologies for it being messy I've been trying this for several hours...

Defaults

     PrimaryActorTick.bCanEverTick = true;
 
     SceneComponent = CreateDefaultSubobject<USceneComponent>(TEXT("SceneComp"));
     SetRootComponent(SceneComponent);
 
     paperSprite = CreateDefaultSubobject<UPaperSpriteComponent>(TEXT("PaperSprite"));
     paperSprite->SetupAttachment(GetRootComponent());
     paperSprite->RegisterComponent();

Asteroid Spawner.

 void AAsteroidSpawner::SpawnAsteroid()
 {
     FVector spawnLoc = FVector(0,0,0);
     FRotator spawnRot = FRotator(0,0,0);
     FActorSpawnParameters params = FActorSpawnParameters();
     params.bDeferConstruction = false;
     params.Owner = this;
 
     AAsteroid* asteroid = GetWorld()->SpawnActor<AAsteroid>(AsteroidClass, spawnLoc, spawnRot, params);
     //asteroid->paperSprite->SetSprite(AsteroidClass->sprite);
     asteroid->UpdateComponentTransforms();
 }

So I've managed to get this somewhat working, by setting the sprite, after spawning the object. However still if I spawn wanting to use my default values I come up with the same issues.
