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"

Is modifying World Position Offset affects collision & normals of a static mesh ?


I want to modify the x,y and z position of vertices of a grid ( plane ) mesh. I came across the fact that it can be easily done by using WorldPositionOffset node in materials. Now my question is that does this modification I desire affect the collision data too ? The main point is that I want a plane which dynamically moves upward and downward and player still stand on it. for this I assume the collision data should wave the same way as the surface is waving

second question : does it affect the normal maps(vertices of mesh). because I have a static mesh, and then the issue is that by changing the position of the vertices I actually should change the value of normal maps too. how can this be done ?

No, the collision will stay the way the original mesh was. It wont be affected by worldpos.

Normal maps, if done right should stay just the same :)
