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"

HideBone won't modify collisions

In SkinnedMeshComponent.cpp, line 1688:

 void USkinnedMeshComponent::HideBone( int32 BoneIndex, EPhysBodyOp PhysBodyOption)
     if (ShouldUpdateBoneVisibility() && BoneIndex < BoneVisibilityStates.Num())
         checkSlow ( BoneIndex != INDEX_NONE );
         BoneVisibilityStates[ BoneIndex ] = BVS_ExplicitlyHidden;

It have PhysBodyOption, but it won't do anything about it, which meas, HideBone won't disable or release any collision bodies.

It may has been reported as UE-19860, but still not fixed.

Any plans to complete this function?

Hey wdhwg001,

UE-19860 is currently backlogged, but I will add this post to the info contained in the bug. Is there any reason PBO-Terminate won't work for your purposes?

It simply didn't handle PBO at all. For example, you cannot hide/release collision of a destructible chunk using HideBone, because in SkinnedMeshComponent, HideBone just directly ignores the PBO param.

Any chance you could attach an example project showing your setup?

If you'd rather send a project privately, you can PM me a link on the forums.

Sorry for the delay. https://www.dropbox.com/s/mh06hm93c8ge3s2/Debug.7z?dl=0 Just shoot to the yellow box and press e, all chunks will gone but the collision won't.

Hey wdhwg001,

I've gone ahead and entered UE-29051 for this issue. In the meantime, is destroying the actor not an option for you?

Sadly it isn't. Actually I want to destroy/hide only parts of one destructible. I've also tried to release PxShape or PxRigidBody, but both of them results in crashes.

That's what I figured you were trying to do. Unfortunately, other than stopping the simulation and then disabling collision, there isn't a workaround.
