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"

Modify child actor created in construction script?

What I am trying to do is to create a dynamic setup of actors that can be adjusted and edited in edit mode.

For example a TV with it's speakers. I want to be able to define the number of speakers in the TV blueprint, get them created and then move them into position. If I don't like the amount, I just change it without altering the position of existing blueprints.

I managed to do this as far as creating the speakers in the construction script of the TV blueprint, which spawns the amount of speakers into the scene.

Whenever I try to select a child actor to move it around, selection is handed back to the TV blueprint, because it has been reconstructed.

How do you handle scripted construction of actors while making them editable in edit time? Maybe the construction script is a bad approach, but I wanted to do this as convenient as possible.
