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"

Bug UE4.7: Translation of Actor in World Editor.

Branch: 'Binary' build from the Unreal Launcher Build version: 4.7 (Final)

I think i have found a bug, or anyway, an unhandled situation. I have created a PickableObject class in my code, derivate from an Actor, the class works fine and is basically empty right now. All it does is declare a StaticMeshComponent in it's Constructor, that code is fine as i'm using it in other classes and works.

This is the public declaration of the StaticMesh: UPROPERTY(EditAnywhere, BlueprintReadWrite, Category = Mesh, meta = (AllowPrivateAccess = "true")) class UStaticMeshComponent* ObjectStaticMesh; i've also tried to make it private and leave just this: UPROPERTY(VisibleDefaultsOnly, Category = Mesh) it doesn't seem to change the result. It happens Every time.

Repro Steps: Drag and Drop PickableObject (Actor derivate) Class into the World in the Editor. Select the Inherited StaticMesh from Details in the Editor. Translate it with either X, Y or Z arrows. Crash (Engine Closes).

The strange thing is that it doesn't happen when you change the object location manually by writing a different number in the object X, Y or Z position in the editor details. That means the location is free to be changed, but there is a bug somewhere in the Translation (ApplyDeltaToComponent) code, i guess.

My code could even be wrong, but this is a bug in any case, because it shouldn't crash.

Screenshots: alt text

System Specs: Win8.1 x64, Intel i7 2600K, 8GB Corsair, Nvidia 670GTX 3GB.

There is no relevant Log, i checked all of them, it crashed while in Visual Studio Debugging Anyway.

I'll past the relevant .cpp and .h PickableObject.h

 #pragma once
 #include "GameFramework/Actor.h"
 #include "PickableObject.generated.h"
 UCLASS(config = Game)
 class DREAMUE4PROJECT_API APickableObject : public AActor
     // Sets default values for this actor's properties
     APickableObject(const FObjectInitializer& ObjectInitializer);
     // Called when the game starts or when spawned
     virtual void BeginPlay() override;
     // Called every frame
     virtual void Tick(float DeltaSeconds) override;
     UPROPERTY(EditAnywhere, BlueprintReadWrite, Category = Mesh, meta = (AllowPrivateAccess = "true"))
     class UStaticMeshComponent* ObjectStaticMesh;


 #include "DreamUE4Project.h"
 #include "PickableObject.h"
 // Sets default values
 APickableObject::APickableObject(const FObjectInitializer& ObjectInitializer)
      // Set this actor to call Tick() every frame.  You can turn this off to improve performance if you don't need it.
     PrimaryActorTick.bCanEverTick = true;
     ObjectStaticMesh = CreateDefaultSubobject<UStaticMeshComponent>(TEXT("HandLeft"));
     FString mpath = "/Game/Models/Character/HandLeft";
     static ConstructorHelpers::FObjectFinder<UStaticMesh> PickupMesh(*mpath);
     ObjectStaticMesh->RelativeLocation = FVector(-550.f, 650.f, 0.f);
 // Called when the game starts or when spawned
 void APickableObject::BeginPlay()
 // Called every frame
 void APickableObject::Tick( float DeltaTime )
     Super::Tick( DeltaTime );

I have fixed the problem for my project by writing: RootComponent = ObjectStaticMesh; in the .cpp constructor, but the bug remains in the engine. I couldn't even drag and drop a BluePrint based on that class, it crashed in a similar way.

Hey Filoppi-

I was able to reproduce the crash you mentioned and have submitted a report to our internal tracking database (UE-11415) for further investigation by an engineer. Thanks for the report and I'm glad you were able to work around it.
