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"

Render Custom Depth not working for Hierarchical Instanced Static Meshes (HISM only)

Setting "Render custom depth" to true for hierarchical instanced mesh components (HISM) doesn't have the intended effect - the meshes are not visible from the custom depth buffer.

I've confirmed the issue is limited to HISM only. Normal instanced meshes work perfectly with Custom render depth.

Hoping this is fixable, HISM is just too good to let go but at the same time I'm using custom depth for so many important gameplay features (I previously used normal instancing) this puts me in somewhat of a bind!

Thank you.
