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"

Event on Landed hit component surface type

Unless I'm doing something wrong, the hit component from the "Event On Landed" event does not output a surface type. I've checked by printing the return value to the screen, but no matter the surface, I get default. I was able to work around this by sending an additional trace to check the surface, but obviously this is not ideal. Any ideas?

Likewise, I'm having trouble getting a surface reading from landscape at all. I've assigned physical materials to the layer infos and even the default, but I continue to get default from the trace. I've confirmed the landscape actor is indeed returned from the trace, and I have had success with static mesh actors.
