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"

physsic object does not detect floor?

I want to make an actor that explodes as it hits the floor, and i know how to do everything no worris there, but the actual floor detection... i cannot get it to work. i try everything but the the object simply does not collide with it somehow. the object does not fall through the floor but the "Hit" Event and the "Begin Overlap" event does not activate once the object hits the floor? why does the object not detect the floor??

First of all check if "Generate hit events" is checked on both floor and your object. Then check your collision setup for both objects. Make sure they don't ignore each other.
