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"

Collision between skeletal mesh and static mesh

I have a playable fishing lure that swims around using thrust, identical to the plane tutorial. the lure has animations, a rig, a mesh, materials, a physics asset, and skeleton. with the dozens of similar questions i have read online, i have not found any definitive way to get my character to collide and drop velocity to 0 like in the plane tutorial.

the best way to simulate my problem, is to throw a skeletal mesh component and a box with a bone inside as the target skeletal mesh, on the plane and you will find that the player no longer has hit events being called upon colliding.

nothing has worked, i have replicated the tutorial plane inch for inch, setting for setting, but with a skeletal mesh instead of a static mesh. 0 positive results. i have replaced the plane in the tutorial with a skeletal mesh, 0 positive results.
