Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How do you fade out chunks with a Destructible Mesh?

Hello, is there a way to fade out chunks?, but i am using a World supported DM so some Parts stay on the object, but the broken parts should fade out slowly. (Blueprint)

Hi SteamGear,

You can use Debris Timeout in your DM mesh to have the pieces destroy themselves. This is for all chunks and not chunk specific though. Also, it will not fade, it will disappear instantly.

The best action to take is to use Nvidias PhysX Labs stand-alone app or their Max/Maya plugin to have the chunks disappear on desstruction and then spawn in a Particle Mesh Emitter. This is the best option for having the most control over your fade in and out of destructible pieces.

Thank you!

Is there a way to get a reference to the chunks in blueprints then? So i can use functions on each chunk? (Excluding those which are on the Supported Mesh)

I'm afraid there is not.

If you want total control over your mesh you would probably want to model the assets in a modeling program where each chunk is it's own mesh. This would give you more control over your object than a destructible mesh.
