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"

Brush Surfaces properties not showing up on BSP Surface

I am in Unreal 4.7.6 When I go and click on the surface of the BSP I am editing to change and align the material. The Brush Surfaces tab dose not show up on the details panel. I check to see if I had "Show only modified properties on but I do not. I have created a new BSP and when i created the new one the Brush Surfaces properties show up in the details. All the BSP that I have edited have this problem. Thanks for all your help. :>

Hey MrFido,

Thank you for noticing this issue with 4.7.6. I have compared my 4.7.6 to 4.8.1 and I have the surface properties in both sections under 'Details' for BSP. Could you please install 4.8.1 and verify that you too see the correct surface properties showing up? If not, please submit a screenshot so that we can look into this further.

Thank you!

Did you click on one face of the BSP? Here is what I get when I do that, which seems to be what you're looking for:

Yes that is what I am clicking on. I have modified it a little. But other then that I can not get the surface properties up onto my details box.

When I make a new BSP, that BSP has the surface properties that will let me edit the marital and light mass.

Are you able to create a copy of your project and open it up within 4.8.1? I am unable to replicate this on 4.7.6 or 4.8.1. Another thing that you can do for me so that I can test out the BSP you're having trouble with is to zip that asset and upload it to your next reply.
