I want the game to use the character I drag and drop into the scene and not autospawn

I want to be able to drag and drop my character into the scene and use it. If I just drag and drop then the game spawns another character into the scene. What can I do? I know about the player start “actor” but I want my character to have a custom rotation.

Look in the Game Settings, you ned to change your default character to your new one.
