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 create a vehicle with modular wheel meshes?

I simply want to be able to dynamically change the visible wheel mesh on my vehicle in game. Is there even any way to do this to a skeletal mesh?

You can create a placeholder Car, import it and get it working. You will have to create sockets at the wheel bones. At this sockets (in you blueprint) you can connect static meshes, your "real" wheels. They can be changed at run-time. The wheels of the placeholder should have a "nothing" material applied(masked, unlit, masked channel set to constant 0).

That's a dirty trick, but it works :D.
