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 attach to componet when target is in level? (No level blueprints)

I want to attach a mesh to a socked I made, but it's not working, becaurse there is no way to reference the object? What is the node I can't find?

It only works in level blueprints, but I need it in my character blueprint. How do I get the mesh reference in there?

No problemo, be sure to mark it as solved :-)

It's very versatile and can be used for skeletal mesh as well.

You don't need to attach it, you just set the mesh for the socket. Ie in your character blueprint you have a static mesh with the desired socket as the parent socket. Then to attach the item you use "Set static mesh" and the mesh you set will be whatever it is you want to attach.
