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"

Hi Ollegn,

Are you new to the Unreal Engine? Geometry editing can be tricky at first. Here is a series of fantastic tutorials by our own Zak Parrish that will help you get started. If you want to go directly to the geometry part, it is here, but I really recommend starting from the beginning.

Hope this helps. If it does not, please report back here with more details on the specific problem you are seeing. Thanks very much!

I used to use UE3, and i was following this exact tutorial, and on the step to change to geometry mode it actually dont change, i cant select individual faces nor change them, i can only rotate and translate, like nothing changed when i moved to geometry mode.

in the photo i selected the cube and the changed to geometry, but i can't change or select only the facesPHOTO

Sorry but the answer wasn't very clear and where do I find a basic cube. I had typed in box and cube and all I get is the BSP cube.

In placing mode you have the basics option and the BSP option, one offers a cube and other a box, the cube in basics tab don't allow you to change its vertex via geometry mode. this in UE 4.7.1

I dont have the options for bsp objects. Under modes, and place, I have all the other options except for bsp. Also I cant seem edit the surface properties of materials.
