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 directionally influence chunks from a destructible mesh?

Basically I want to "blow" the chunks away from the player, that is located right in front of the destructible mesh after it has received damage and as it is crumbling/exploding. Is this done in blueprint (hopefully the level blueprint, as blueprints with DMs in them crash the engine) or can I use the DM editor?

Hey Thunderstorm,

It sounds like you might want to create an explosive force. Check out this tutorial from one of our users:


It goes through using Blueprints to create an explosive force that can effect destructible meshes. You should be able to then adjust the Blueprints and force settings to get what you want.

Hope that helps!
