DefaultPawn implements a simple Pawn with spherical collision and built-in flying movement. see: UFloatingPawnMovement
Editor Properties: (see get_editor_property/set_editor_property)
actor_guid(Guid): [Read-Write] Actor Guid: The GUID for this actor.
- Note: Don’t use VisibleAnywhere here to avoid getting the CPF_Edit flag and get this property reset when resetting to defaults.
See FActorDetails::AddActorCategory and EditorUtilities::CopySingleProperty for details.
add_default_movement_bindings(bool): [Read-Write] Add Default Movement Bindings: If true, adds default input bindings for movement and camera look.
ai_controller_class(type(Class)): [Read-Write] AIController Class: Default class to use when pawn is controlled by AI.
allow_tick_before_begin_play(bool): [Read-Write] Allow Tick Before Begin Play: Whether we allow this Actor to tick before it receives the BeginPlay event. Normally we don’t tick actors until after BeginPlay; this setting allows this behavior to be overridden. This Actor must be able to tick for this setting to be relevant.
always_relevant(bool): [Read-Write] Always Relevant: Always relevant for network (overrides bOnlyRelevantToOwner).
auto_destroy_when_finished(bool): [Read-Write] Auto Destroy when Finished: If true then destroy self when “finished”, meaning all relevant components report that they are done and no timelines or timers are in flight.
auto_possess_ai(AutoPossessAI): [Read-Write] Auto Possess AI: Determines when the Pawn creates and is possessed by an AI Controller (on level start, when spawned, etc). Only possible if AIControllerClassRef is set, and ignored if AutoPossessPlayer is enabled. see: AutoPossessPlayer
auto_possess_player(AutoReceiveInput): [Read-Write] Auto Possess Player: Determines which PlayerController, if any, should automatically possess the pawn when the level starts or when the pawn is spawned. see: AutoPossessAI
auto_receive_input(AutoReceiveInput): [Read-Write] Auto Receive Input: Automatically registers this actor to receive input from a player.
base_eye_height(float): [Read-Write] Base Eye Height: Base eye height above collision center.
base_look_up_rate(float): [Read-Only] Base Look Up Rate: Base lookup rate, in deg/sec. Other scaling may affect final lookup rate.

default_update_overlaps_method_during_level_streaming(ActorUpdateOverlapsMethod): [Read-Only] Default Update Overlaps Method During Level Streaming: Default value taken from config file for this class when ‘UseConfigDefault’ is chosen for ‘UpdateOverlapsMethodDuringLevelStreaming’. This allows a default to be chosen per class in the matching config. For example, for Actor it could be specified in DefaultEngine.ini as:
[/Script/Engine.Actor] DefaultUpdateOverlapsMethodDuringLevelStreaming = OnlyUpdateMovable
Another subclass could set their default to something different, such as:
[/Script/Engine.BlockingVolume] DefaultUpdateOverlapsMethodDuringLevelStreaming = NeverUpdate see: UpdateOverlapsMethodDuringLevelStreaming

pivot_offset(Vector): [Read-Write] Pivot Offset: Local space pivot offset for the actor, only used in the editor
player_state(PlayerState): [Read-Write] Player State: If Pawn is possessed by a player, points to its Player State. Needed for network play as controllers are not replicated to clients.
primary_actor_tick(ActorTickFunction): [Read-Write] Primary Actor Tick: Primary Actor tick function, which calls TickActor(). Tick functions can be configured to control whether ticking is enabled, at what time during a frame the update occurs, and to set up tick dependencies. see: https://docs.unrealengine.com/API/Runtime/Engine/Engine/FTickFunction see: AddTickPrerequisiteActor(), AddTickPrerequisiteComponent()
receive_controller_changed_delegate(PawnControllerChangedSignature): [Read-Write] Receive Controller Changed Delegate: Event called after a pawn’s controller has changed, on the server and owning client. This will happen at the same time as the delegate on GameInstance

root_component(SceneComponent): [Read-Write] Root Component: The component that defines the transform (location, rotation, scale) of this Actor in the world, all other components must be attached to this one somehow
runtime_grid(Name): [Read-Write] Runtime Grid: Determine in which partition grid this actor will be placed in the partition (if the world is partitioned). If None, the decision will be left to the partition.
spawn_collision_handling_method(SpawnActorCollisionHandlingMethod): [Read-Write] Spawn Collision Handling Method: Controls how to handle spawning this actor in a situation where it’s colliding with something else. “Default” means AlwaysSpawn here.
sprite_scale(float): [Read-Write] Sprite Scale: The scale to apply to any billboard components in editor builds (happens in any WITH_EDITOR build, including non-cooked games).
tags(Array(Name)): [Read-Write] Tags: Array of tags that can be used for grouping and categorizing.
update_overlaps_method_during_level_streaming(ActorUpdateOverlapsMethod): [Read-Write] Update Overlaps Method During Level Streaming: Condition for calling UpdateOverlaps() to initialize overlap state when loaded in during level streaming. If set to ‘UseConfigDefault’, the default specified in ini (displayed in ‘DefaultUpdateOverlapsMethodDuringLevelStreaming’) will be used. If overlaps are not initialized, this actor and attached components will not have an initial state of what objects are touching it, and overlap events may only come in once one of those objects update overlaps themselves (for example when moving). However if an object touching it does initialize state, both objects will know about their touching state with each other. This can be a potentially large performance savings during level loading and streaming, and is safe if the object and others initially overlapping it do not need the overlap state because they will not trigger overlap notifications.
Note that if ‘bGenerateOverlapEventsDuringLevelStreaming’ is true, overlaps are always updated in this case, but that flag determines whether the Begin/End overlap events are triggered. see: bGenerateOverlapEventsDuringLevelStreaming, DefaultUpdateOverlapsMethodDuringLevelStreaming, GetUpdateOverlapsMethodDuringLevelStreaming()
use_controller_rotation_pitch(bool): [Read-Write] Use Controller Rotation Pitch: If true, this Pawn’s pitch will be updated to match the Controller’s ControlRotation pitch, if controlled by a PlayerController.
use_controller_rotation_roll(bool): [Read-Write] Use Controller Rotation Roll: If true, this Pawn’s roll will be updated to match the Controller’s ControlRotation roll, if controlled by a PlayerController.
use_controller_rotation_yaw(bool): [Read-Write] Use Controller Rotation Yaw: If true, this Pawn’s yaw will be updated to match the Controller’s ControlRotation yaw, if controlled by a PlayerController.
