Question: Dynamic pawn location Step 7 part 3 of Cesium into Unreal Quickstart tutorial

Hi Support,

The Dynamic Pawn actor that we need to use because the Floating Pawn doesn’t work, doesn’t seem to allow the following step you say to use in resetting

the location of the Dynamic Pawn to be in Chicago to match the OSM Buildings layer you want us to use.

You’re help in getting this figured would be much appreciated.

Thank you

Roger

When you set the Georeference origin, the Editor camera will jump there immediately. However, the FloatingPawn will adjust itself so that maintains its previous location on the globe in spite of the change in origin. If you would like to start in Chicago when you press Play, click the FloatingPawn in the WorldOutliner and set its Location to (0, 0, 0).

Hi again Support,

I redid the tutorial and this time the Dynamic Pawn world outliner details showed the variable fields that let me locate the pawn at 0,0, 0.
So not sure what I did in the prior effort that didn’t bring up those variable fields.

thanks
Roger
