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"

Its probably going to take up a fair bit of space if you keep your initialisation values for each skill in blueprint.

Some ideas to make it smaller are:

  1. Use a sequence node then each skill is another pin out of the sequence (creates a lot of vertical space instead of horizontal).

  2. Put the initialisation script into a function so it can be moved out of the event graph at least.

  3. You can also use the right-click "collapse nodes" functionality to condense the nodes into one.

These are all sort-of bandaids though, a different solution is to move these initialisation values for each skill into a data table and then iterate that data table in blueprint to setup each skill appropriately. This may require some refactor of your code though. Note, if you do make a data table they don't have to have their columns defined in C++ as the docs imply, instead you can do it all in editor by making a custom struct too.
