Static Meshes Keep Disappearing when Packaging
Hello, This is so frustrating and weird... I have a city with around a dozen different buildings as static meshes. In the viewport, when I do a standalone preview, I have no problems. Whenever I go to package the project, random buildings decide to not be there. Last night, after reimporting the problem buildings, I got a good package. This morning, I made a few small changes, packaged the project, and now around 5 of the buildings are gone. Some are the ones I reimported, some are ones that were always showing up. I'm going to make a few other small changes and I'm sure next time I rebuild, 3 buildings will be gone, etc etc. I have checked "Full Rebuild" checked and unchecked for distribution...tried different build configurations. It's always random. I would say 1/10 builds are fine, 9/10 totally random buildings are missing. I don't know what is going on. Reimporting them, renaming them, reimporting the textures, redoing the materials...none of it has worked. Does anyone have any idea what could be happening? The most frustrating thing is I am not able to repeat the error with any certainty...it's always different. Building on windows 8, 4.11.2, they are static meshes that I placed in the level. These are mostly meshes I migrated from another project. But now some of them I have completely recreated in this project and they're still disappearing. It seems to be only the meshes in the content browser folder called 'buildings'. All my other static meshes are working fine. Also the meshes that are disappearing have destructible mesh counterparts...the destructible meshes are not disappearing, though. Just the static ones. Thanks for any help!
