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"

How can I stop chunks from moving with the destructible mesh?

To preface this issue, I'd like to point out that this was reported as a bug last year in this thread: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/94830/how-to-get-destructible-mesh-chunks-to-stay-put-ev.html.

That said, I'm running into the issue now and I'm wondering if anyone has a workaround? For the sake of clarity, here is a small clip displaying the issue. https://PhluxDev.tinytake.com/sf/MzIxMTk2XzE4OTY5NDA As you can see, the chunks on the ground are moving with the door as it opens and closes. I've been tinkering with the debris settings but I can't produce any noticeable changes.

Hi Phlux,

At the moment there has been no progress on the original bug since it's backlogged. So as a workaround if you would like to have something where the area around the door handle be fractured you can you can take the door into your modeling application and pre-fracture it.

You can then use Blueprints to have your original door in the frame. Then when damage is received from a weapon you can use some BP code to swap out the mesh and have the chunks simulate physics to fall out.

This is probably the best way to go about this without using a DM. While you will have more meshes and have to deal with the BP side of things you get a finer control over this setup than what the DM editor can provide at the moment.

I hope this helps.
