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"

Spawn actor collision only works with capsule

I have an actor I am trying to spawn using spawn actor by class and I attempted to use the collision handling overrides to ensure it doesn't overlap other objects in the scene. However, after testing, it seems that static mesh and box collision are ignored as a collision for purposes of spawning and only the capsule is taken into account.

The collision works properly outside of spawning its just the spawning that causes there static mesh's to stack on top of other objects

Product Version: UE 4.14

Hi Botanicvelious,

If you look at the tooltip for 'Try to adjust location, but always spawn' you will see that it needs a Shape Component in order to work. The Capsule Component is considered a Shape Component but standard collision is not.

Try adding one of the Shape Components listed on that docs page that best fits the object you are spawning in. I just tested this in 4.14.3 and it is working on my end.

Let me know if you have any other questions about this.
