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"

Custom mesh only viewable from a certain angle

Hey, so I have this custommeshcomponent, which is in a blueprint.

When I spawn it, I can only see the mesh from oneside.

This mesh is a triangle. Here are two pictures:

From this side it's viewable

but if you walk over to the left a few steps: alt text

It suddenly becomes invisible.

Do you know why this happens and if I can fix this?

I believe the you need to set your material to 2 sided. The back faces are culled by default. Here is a link to a similar question that should help you out.

Thank you this worked! I went into the material of the custom mesh and changed it there!

Do you by any chance know how to add collisions to a custom mesh?

No problem! Here is a detailed tutorial that shows how to do it in c++. I'm not sure if there is a way do do it in blueprint yet.
