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"

Custom Character model Shrinks when put as playable character

Hi, this is my first question so hopefully everything's in the right place,

I've created a custom character model which uses the UE4 default 3rd person animations and animation blueprint. However when I replace the playable character and animation blueprint with my own mesh, and duplicated animation blueprint respectively I end up with a scaled down model that floats above the ground in the level. (This is shown in the image as well as the original size of the mesh.)I have no idea what might have gone wrong here since the animation seem to work fine in the previews. alt text

  • scale your mesh in your character bp

  • are you animations in the right size when you preview them in persona?

  • which version do you use? :)

  • I can scale my mesh in the games character blueprint but that's more of a temporary solution as I can't get the exact size of my mesh from that (unless I do a lot of trial and error.)

  • The same problem happens when previewing the animations, but is fine in when viewing the skeleton without them

  • I'm using 4.7.3 =)

Check that parents in bp isn't scaled down as long as everything is 1 then it should be original size
