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"

How to change mass for destructible component?

Hi, everyone. I'm making simple asteroid game and trying to make my asteroids destructible. But I have a little problem. My asteroids fly away when hit by projectiles like they are made from plastic. Changing "Mass Scale" in properties of the component doesn't help. I want to make them a little heavier so they won't bounce from my bullets. Can anybody help with this?

P.S. Sorry for my poor English. :)

You need to make a "Physics Material" (link) and raise the "Density" property. Then, simply apply this "Physics Material" to your static mesh for your asteroid. This will increase the mass of your static mesh and achieve the behavior you are describing.
