Actors, ActorBase etc

I know when I need to use GetName() for example I need to use the base but what exacty is going on here? Why is there even a base for these objects when they already inherit form? can someone explain technically why they are used and when are you supposed to use them? The creation kit wiki doesnt really explain it in much detail. Like why would i use GetLeveledActorBase vs GetActorBase vs using Actor class itself... what is the difference?


ActorBase extends Form

Actor extends ObjectReference which extends Form


You cannot call an ActorBase function with an Actor. You must get the ActorBase of the Actor before you can call such a function.


GetName() will compile with an Actor because GetName() is on the Form script but the ObjectReference record does not have a Name entry. Thus in order to access the name, the base must be used.


Actor refers to the pre-placed or spawned in instance

ActorBase refers to the actual record that the Actor is derived from


I do not have experience with leveled actors, cannot give any specifics on that.

Editor-Defined Actor Values

You can use the Creation Kit to create new Actor Values. Just right click in the Actor Value list in the Object Window and choose New or Duplicate, as with any other type of form. You give the Actor Value a unique name, which is its form ID, and have the option of specifying a default value for the Actor Value (this is normally 0.0). Once you've added a new Actor Value, it can be used elsewhere in the Creation Kit, in Papyrus or via the Console. (source)
