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"

Fractured Mesh Maintain it's shape

I'm looking to make destructible buildings for my game. The game is a sort of Rampage type game where the building are pretty small compared to the player. Right now I'm simply building my sky scrapers out out of collections of destructible meshes. Like in the following picture: alt text This work okay, but the main issue I have is: when a cube breaks, the entire cube sort of "pops" like a balloon. How do I make a destructible mesh only break off a single piece? (I've tried lowering the damage spread, but it still happens)

Hi Hypnonotic,

In order for the chunks to "stick" together you'll also want to make sure that you've set the Support Depth to 1. This will keep the chunks in destruction depth 1 stuck together until they receive enough damage to break free.

Also, take a look at this troubleshooting guide for Destrucitbles here: https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Destructible_Troubleshooting_Guide

I made this a while ago. It goes over some of the more common Destrucitbles Questions that are asked.

I hope this helps.

Tim
