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"

Physics Asset custom collision mesh

I have a skeletal mesh which needs a custom mesh collider. My problem is that physics assets are ignoring UCX_* meshes for there collision mesh generation. Is there some kind of solution out there or do I have to fall back to static meshes?

I just forgot how to do this again and noticed this went unanswered:

In the Physics Asset editor:

  • right-click on the bone you want to add custom collision mesh for

  • at the bottom of the pop-up menu, under 'Advanced', is a drop-down box called 'Copy Collision from StaticMesh' click on that and choose the mesh to copy collision (requires adding a 'New Body' to the bone, if it doesn't already have one, before the option is displayed)

As the name implies, it requires importing a static mesh with the custom collision to copy the collision from.

Note: If you had to create a 'New Body' to add the custom collision, you can delete the collision it generates after copying your custom collision.
