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"

Can't move blueprint actor after toggling component mobility

I changed a component mobility to static when playing around with the lighting settings and then changed it back to movable and now I can not move the blueprint actor. It's like the blueprint actor is stuck to static. Is there another setting somewhere that got changed whenever I changed the component to static? I even tried restoring a saved blueprint and still can't move it.

I was able to restore the blueprints from autosaves and it was able to move again, but something must be getting cached whenever you set a component to static and try to change it back to movable so maybe this should go under bug reports.

I also had this strange behaviour.

alt text

In the picture above, I changed the Mobility of "hitbox_r" to Static and then back to Movable. This would make the entire character static.

To fix it I had to toggle the Mobility of the "CapsuleComponent (Inherited)" to Static and then back to Moveable.

I'm also having major trouble with actors and movable/static/stationary. the problem is, my setup is rather complex (static house meshes, static and movable lights) and I know exactly if I file a bug report here, Epic will ask me the standard questions and I simply can not explain what exactly is going wrong. Sometimes the mesh snaps back to 0/0/ when I move the actor while the movable components work, sometimes the lights dont offer anything but "movable" in the BP but I can change it later once the actor is placed, sometimes the stationary lights show as such but cast no dynamic shadow. It's a mess and I only get it right by fumbling with the whole thing like a gorilla and right now it's (mostly working). But I could not explain A) what to do to create the situation or B) how to fix it. All I know is there are some major bugs in the actor code that deals with mobility
