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"

Changing mesh from parent class

I've created a actor blueprint (name BoxActor) with a mesh component named Mesh. After that I've created another blueprint extending from the BoxActor. I can see Mesh there, but I can't change it. Why?

Is there any way to change the mesh without using bp blocks?

Hey intoxicat3-

Your best choices would be to either set the mesh how you want it inside the construction script of the blueprint or to remove the mesh component from the parent and add it directly to the child blueprint. I will have to look into the mesh component of the character blueprint, but I don't believe that is supposed to be the case.

Hey intoxicat3-

The blueprint that extends from BoxActor is meant to inherent the behavior of its parent while having the option for additional functionality. Changes made to BoxActor would appear in the child blueprint however the child is unable to change the properties of the parent. Hope this information is useful.

Yes I understand:)

BUT there is a Character blueprint that you can extend off and there is a Mesh Component that is empty and you can change it if you want.

How to create something like this using custom blueprints?
