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 set / get attributes for "team" of characters?

Hey gang,

So my intention is for a player to be able to possess different characters on their "team"....with each character having a LOT of different attributes (speed, strength, jump height, etc.)

Normally what I'd do here is create a giant Excel sheet of data with the player names running vertically in the left-most column of the sheet and their attributes being listed out horizontally next to each name with a number corresponding to how good that player is at a given skill (Speed = 100, Strength = 50, etc.).........and then I'd pass that giant sheet of data off to a programmer and BAM, the magic would happen.

I want to achieve this myself using blueprints (implementing a team of characters and assigning their attributes). Is this possible? What's the best / smartest way for me to achieve this?

Is there a way for me to PULL a lot of this data FROM an excel sheet to create the needed variables?

I'm trying to achieve the same thing, and I'm doing what Shadowriver said, making one huge supercharacter and then i'll go back and alter everything from there.

You'll probably have to make your stable of characters, get them into an array somehow, and then figure out how to toggle through them from there. I haven't figured it out yet either or I'd help. I've messed w/ the "possess" command but nothing really solid for toggling through a group yet.
