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"

Physics actor gets stuck

I have a blueprint class where the root component is a physics driven mesh, a ball. The scene is very simple, an empty room made up of boxes. A frame takes a stable 15 ms to render. The problem is that often the ball gets embedded in a wall or ceiling even at moderate speeds, ~40 km/h. (The ball weighs 1.7 Kg.)

Turning on CCD and physics substeps didn't help.

One thing I forgot: physics calculations and the ball itself are constrained to the XZ plane.

Here is how the ball and the ceiling mesh are aligned (YZ cross section):

So the ball hits the box above right at the edge and that seems to be the problem. If the ball is moved a bit to the right then I can't make it penetrate even with twice the speed.

Is this behaviour expected or a bug?
