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"

OnComponentHit for Destructible Chunk contains no impulse or hit data

I'm working on a project with destructible structures. I'd like to apply damage to actors that are hit by fractured destructible mesh chunks based on their velocity. I'm attempting to read the impulse from a destructible chunk hitting a collision capsule and am getting 0.0,0.0,0.0.

I've tried several workarounds to try to track the impulse of chunks (including reading several of the variables of the hit struct, most of which read the same 0.0,0.0,0.0 value, save for impact normal) to no avail and am at a lost as to what what else I can try. Any help would be appreciated :)

Hi ElChipacabra,

Thank you for the report. I was able to reproduce this behavior so I created JIRA UE-34953 and our developers will be investigating further. You can follow that link to monitor it's progress on our online bug tracker.

Unfortunately, I don't have a workaround for the issue. You would likely need to implement it through code. If you want to look into this, you may want to post a separate report in the C++ section or the forums.

Understood. Thank you for taking care of that and for getting back to me, TJ.
