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"

Office Holiday

Epic Games' offices will be on holiday from June 22nd to July 7th. During this period support will be limited. Our offices will reopen on Monday, July 8th. 

Destructible mesh and support depth

When using destructible meshes, using a support depth of 1 prevents the whole mesh being destroyed in a single hit. So far so good. The problem occurs when a few chunks have been knocked off the mesh from a hit. Once those first chunks have been removed, the remaining mesh becomes solid and will not take any more damage or create any more chunks. Whta is happening and why and how can I stop this happening. I want to be able to slowly chip away at a mesh, removing a rew chunks at a time, instead of knocking off a few chunks and then having the rest of the mesh be indestructible. Please help.

I am also having this problem!

In general, I think this editor could use a lot of simplification and clarity. If Epic would like some ideas how, I'm willing to offer. I'm trying to teach this editor to a group of high school kids and it just seems like there's a lot of places students can get easily lost and confused.

It's a known issue with DMs.

You can create your DM in Maya using the apex plug in and import it as single meshes, reduce the amount of chunks in your model, or change your game plan.
