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"

[Closed] Being warned about Collision Settings, incorrectly?

This is new, ever since moving to 4.9 - I'm being warned about problems with my collision settings, even though they match what the engine is telling me... It does seem to be having an effect though, none of the objects move when they get impulses anymore. They're having Physics forces applied every frame though, so collision is clearly setup properly.

Bump - this is still happening, still not heard anything.

The objects are constantly 'Hovering' on the ground by means of a physics 'spring' that I've created. That doesn't trigger the warning, despite the fact that it's adding force and torque to the object.

If an explosion tries to apply force to it though (via radial force) - it triggers this warning en-mass.

Please add a picture of the physics tab.

There's nothing special set there, only that 'Simulate Physics' is set to true. Nothing else has changed.

Hello TheJamsh,

I'm trying to reproduce this problem but I'm not having any luck at the moment. Will this also happen with a base actor created in C++ with just a CapsuleComponent and a Mesh added? The only time I'm getting these warnings is when they actually make sense.

Hi Matthew, I actually fixed this issue last night.

The problem was (as expected) on my end - I was apply force the object after it had been killed (at which point it's collision was switched off). The warning didn't exist before 4.9 so I didn't realise, so all is well :)
