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"

Breaking bones using Blueprint

I'm trying to create the effect that you can cut down a tree. So, I've set up a tree model with two bones (the part that stays in the ground and the part that will fall down when you "cut" it) Now, I've added this skeletal mesh (the tree) to an Actor Blueprint and I want to test out if my idea works. I have surrounded the mesh with a box trigger and I want to be able to walk inside that trigger and "disconnect" the two bones from each other when I do that.

Is this possible? I have the Actor Begin Overlap node ready but I don't know what to do from there.

TL;DR: Disconnecting bones using a Blueprint? How do I do it?

Thanks in advance

You can't, not with BP only anyway and i wouldnt know how to achieve that with code. It would be better to use 2 static meshes though. The root part would be always static and you could simulate physics for the upper part of the tree mesh when it is chopped.

Thanks for the idea. Maybe I was looking to far for a solution. I'll try it out
