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"

Thank you! but do you know what the settings should be? I'm haveing difficulty figuring it out

The best thing would be to make a custom collision mesh. But for now to get you going, you go into the mesh editor and change collision setting to "use complex as simple." This is not the best approach because every face of the mesh will check for collision each tick. So unless you are walking on the ceiling it's wasted resources. See if that works.

IM on the newest version and i don't see any settings like that but i will look into the custom collision thing

I have included a picture here. Double click on your mesh in content browser. This will open mesh editor. on the right by default will be the details panel. scroll down till you see "static mesh settings" and change "collision complexity" from "default" to "use complex as simple." It should still be in the same place in 4.14 as it has been for at least 4.8 In this example I have a room with several doorways. It has many faces for vertex painting but I enabled the show collision flag so you can see the purple lines in the mesh is the collision following each face in the mesh. Yours will look different depending on the topology of your mesh. alt text
