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 attach a Skeletal Mesh with physics to an object in the world?

Hi,

I've created a hanging wire object as a skeletal mesh and have set up a Physics Asset for it. I'd like to now parent it to a static mesh in the world (or just place it in the world) and let it dangle. However, when I play the game, the wire just falls to the floor.

How can I lock the root of the wire in place so it can hang, but still remain an active physics object?

hey, if you place the physics actor in the editor and than select it you can just lock him in place by checking all the x y z constraints in the physics section in the details of the actor.

alternatively you can just right click it and then click "attach to" to attach it to a parent actor.
