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 to render collision meshes in Solid way? Wireframe is not enough

Hi there!

In cryengine all collision meshes are solid and this was very convenient for the most cases. In specific cases we can even set opacity for more detailed view. But in UE4 collisions are rendered in wireframe mode, it's hard to determine some places where camera may penetrate geomentry and so on.

I found this piece of code here: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/API/Runtime/Engine/FStaticMeshSceneProxy/DrawDynamicElements/2/index.html

 const bool bDrawSolid = !bDrawWireframeCollision;
     if (bDrawSolid){
         // Make a material for drawing solid collision stuff
         const FColoredMaterialRenderProxy SolidMaterialInstance(
         GEngine->ShadedLevelColorationUnlitMaterial->GetRenderProxy(IsSelected(), IsHovered()), WireframeColor);

Looks like it's possible, at least on Code side. Maybe there's some way to render collision in Solid way? It would be perfect in some cases.
