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"

Can't use "Spawn actor from class" return value

I want to be able to set my "PlayerClassToSpawn" variable to a different Player on a button press. However, the problem is when I use this variable in the class slot in the Spawn actor from class node, I cant use the return value anymore in the possess node.

Why is this? and how do I get around this problem?

Without using a variable I can get return value

This is because you can only "possess" pawns or characters and since the "Spawn Actor From Class" node could potentially spawn a non-possessable actor it won't allow you to use a node with it that is potentially incompatible. Below are screen shots explaining the issue and how to fix it.
