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 prevent BSP brushes from merging into a single object?

For gameplay reasons, I need to get the bounds of any object that is under the player's cursor. This includes walls that I place in the level using box brushes. Currently, all the brushes seem to be merged into a single UModelComponent and the bounds that it returns are actually the bounds of the entire level geometry.

Is there a way to prevent this and actually get the bounds of the single brush? I know I could convert the brushes into static meshes, but I'd like to avoid that if possible. Thanks!

late to answer here but you have to solutions.

1: Lay down individual brushes 2: Use static meshes. Either of these will resolve the problem.
