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"

Landscape holes not doing anything visually

So this is my setup, just like in the example provided: ![alt text

The problem is that while the holes are there (because I fall through when I play the game) The engine gives no indication that a hole is present, they are completely indistinguishable from the landscape except you can fall into them. Can somebody help please ?

Hi Marcomaryred,

Just using the visibility mask I'm still able to see the hole that is painted. However, for the best results, it would be better if you setup the material using the full setup used in this page: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Landscape/Materials/index.html#landscapeholematerials

You'll want to make sure that you're plugging the material into your Material slot and the landscape hole material slot.

Thank you!

Apparently I had everything set up properly, the hole started being visible after I added some landscape layers

I'm not sure exactly why, as I originally did mine without any layers or even just a diffuse color plugged in.

Glad it's working for you now though! :)
