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"

Set Simulate Physics causes skeletal mesh to fall through floor only if called from blueprint

I have a character with a skeletal mesh that I want to ragdoll at a certain point during my game. When I check 'Simulate Physics' in the details panel of the skeletal mesh, everything works as expected and the mesh ragdolls onto the ground when I press Play. But when I turn off 'Simulate Physics' in the details panel and call 'Set Simulate Physics' through blueprints, the skeletal mesh falls through the floor. I've made sure that collision is enabled on the floor and my skeletal mesh but it doesn't fix the issue. Any ideas or help on this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Did you ever figure this out? I'm dealing with the exact same thing. It's a zombie character from that Maximo AnimPack from Epic. As soon as I set the simulate physics through the BP i set for it the enemy falls right through my built items. frustrating, im using 4.12 now and it still happens.
