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"

Should Ability Be Component

This is quite beginners question, but what is commonly used as parent class for pickable items/skills?

My game is planned to have around 100 usable items. Good example of one would be grappling hook, that consists of 3 PaperFlipbookComponents and some tick logic.

At the moment, grappling hook is child class of SceneComponent that gets created upon pickup and attached to player, but it feels I am forcing components to do role that they were never meant to do. For example, I cannot use CreateDefaultSubobject to create those 3 PaperFlipbookComponents since I am creating grappling hook "On Pickup", aka runtime. That means using NewObject, but that does not play well with editor.

I can attach all 100 items to the player by default, have them inactive and visibility = false, but that seems like terrible idea.
