I’ve been stuck on this for a couple of days. I have a blueprint actor that refuses to be deleted. Not just in code, but in the editor also. When I click play and the actor is spawned in, I F8 out and click the actor, and hit delete. The console output says “Deleted actor Workshop_BP_0”, but it’s still there. Another very similar actor deletes just fine. For a time, it was deleting just fine, and seemingly overnight it stopped working. I’ve tried rebuilding the BP from scratch thinking it might have corrupted, but it still happens. I’ve removed all the meshes and done everything I can think of to debug and find out what’s causing it.
So what factors can cause Destroy() to fail and return false? I can’t find any documentation or discussion about Destroy() returning false and not working.
HELP LOL this is driving me crazy.
EDIT SOLVED: It appears I was not calling Super in BeginPlay(). Not 100% because I don’t have a version control for that that I can check. But, what I can check suggests that is the most likely explanation. It makes sense that all kinds of stuff would get registered in BeginPlay() that you would need to properly destroy an actor.
