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"

Creating crater in landscape (editing heightmap in runtime)

I would like to create a crater in my landscape on a given x,y coordinate. I've made this in unity before by adding a crater texture to the heightmap on a x,y coordinate on the landscape. Is this possible to do in Unreal? maybe there is another way of doing it? I am not a very good C++ programmer so I would prefer a solution in blueprint. However, if someone knows how to do this in C++ I would appreciate that as well.

I haven't found a solution to modifying height maps for terrains in blueprint yet. I would assume that if you wanted to try something like your Unity method you would have to try mucking around in the C++.

Are you by any chance trying to generate craters from a manner that you would be able to modify the heightmap before generating the terrain? Or are you trying to have asteroids (or some equivalent) leave dents in your landscape?

I want to be able to shoot projectiles that explode on impact and leaves a crater in the landscape. So I need to be able to modify the heightmap during gameplay.
