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"

Destructible mesh not working on Mac

Hi, I've followed the tutorial on making a destructible mesh exactly and it doesn't work. It doesn't create a fractured mesh. I'm using UE4.1.1 on OSX Mavericks.

Steps to reproduce:

double click on the chair mesh. give it a collider, then right click the chair and click destructible mesh. Click on Fracture mesh and nothing happens.

Hey Jester,

Currently Destructible Meshes do not work on the Mac. This is a known issue and we are working on resolving it, but it is somewhat complex and may take some time. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Are they going to fix this anytime soon? I did not know this was an issues when I got this engine and I really wanted to be able to create destructible environments and only have my Mac available to me at this time. If not is there some place I can find already created destructible meshes that will load into my game and function properly?

Hey Mykal,

The developers have not yet found the source of this bug on the Mac, but they have been so swamped with other bugs for the next release that they haven't had a lot of time to spend on it yet. After speaking with them, it sounds like they will be looking into it more shortly. I will try to remember to update you here when I hear there's been progress. Thanks for your patience!

Is there any update on this issue?

Hey lefam,

Destructibles should be working in 4.4, which you can preview now and which should be officially released soon. There are some other Mac issues in 4.4, but hopefully those will be fixed by the official release.
