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"

Do you mean a tooltip? That's just metadata, you can't use it in a BP. You can try using Maps as collections of variables, where you can put both a value and a description that's usable in BPs.

Big oof. Anyway to quickly copy paste the enum data somewhere? I have over 679 names for both genders.

Consider looking into DataTables instead.

Or embed an enumerator in a struct.

Would I still be able to random pull the correct names/ descriptions for my npc?

Yes, use a DataTable. You can access an entry randomly by index or directly, by name.

You can load it up from an external file automagically. No need to manually punch things in. Apart from populating an Excel sheet.
