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"

Decals overlapping player character?

I have a simple blood splatter decal that I have spawning when an AI character dies, it all works as I want except that the decal overlays itself on anything that goes near/over the decal.

Here is a video showing the problem, any thoughts on how to fix it would be much appreciated, I played around with the blending modes for a long while in the mat editor, but haven't been able to find a fix yet!

Hey EoinOBroin -

To completely remove the decal from the player character (or any object that you do not want the decals to appear) do under rendering in the details panel (Level Viewport or Blueprints) and set receive Decals to False.

Thank You

Eric Ketchum
