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"

dynamically spawned actors dont collide

In my game you are able to spawn walls in game, problem is that nothing is colliding with these walls. If however they aren't spawned in game but rather put into the map then it works fine. I'm spawning the same actor and i've make all the collisions i can find to block all. I've also tried making the root a scene component and make an additional collision mesh (cube) as a child. Ideas? alt text

Hi Netmanx,

Can you show your BP and any relevant setup that you've done? Using the Starter Content > Architecture > Wall_500x500 mesh I was able to spawn this as a test and it uses it's collision. I did not change nay of the collision presets and only have the static mesh use its own collision.

Let me know.

Using the basics of your setup above I've not been able to reproduce this on my end. :/

I didn't use any the branches that you've got setup and I applied the BP that spawns via the drop down on the Spawn Actor nodes as well.

When either the scaled cube or the regular cube spawns I have collision with my third person character.

If you have a sample project that you can reproduce this in I can have a look and see if something seems off.

Let me know.

I have it working now thanks. The problem was when i was placing the object the make transform was set to 0, by changing those to 1 it works fine now.
