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"

Sweep for multiple static meshes without 'Simulate Physics' possible?

Hi there!

I tried the following: Create an actor with multiple static meshes attached to it, physics simulation turned off, collision is set to 'BlockAllDynamic'. Move it by using 'Set Actor Location' with 'Sweep' enabled. Result: Collision during sweep is only calculated for the root element, all additional static meshes are ignored.

Is there a way for turning collisions on for all attached static meshes during sweep?

Additional Information: Testing the level, the player does collide with every single mesh - it is only ignored during sweep. Turning on physics results in collisions for the meshes as well. However, 'Set Actor Location' seems not to work in that case and I get a lot of unwanted side effects. I tried different functions that support sweep, e.g. 'Add Actor Local Offset', with identical results.

Any help will be appreciated, thank you!
