Landscape grass output node for non-landscape materials
Is there a node like the Landscape Grass Output for non-landscape materials? What i'm trying to do is spawn grass/rocks on the surface of a tessellated sphere, but all my results so far are spawning on the actual sphere and not on the tessellated surface.

You can spawn grass meshes on a sphere in a different manner. Try this: 1)Open the modes toolbar of your ue4 editor. 2)Go to your foliage section of the modes toololbar. 3)Drag and drop your grass mesh into the foliage tool from the content browser. 4)In the upper middle part of your foliage panel tick the checkbox next to static meshes (you will see that there are four checkboxes with landscape and bsp surfaces already ticked.) 5) Now you can paint grass meshes on your sphere.
Hint: If you need the grass meshes to align to a particular landscape layer, there is an option to do that in the grass foliage type options menu which can be found in the lower part of the foliage panel.
