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"

Hello NR6,

I ran a few tests on our end. I was unable to reproduce this issue on our end. I have a few questions for you that will help narrow down what issue it is that you are experiencing.

Quick questions:

  1. Can you reproduce this issue in a clean project?

  2. If so, could you provide a detailed list of steps (that include any small steps that may have been missed in your original post) to reproduce this issue on our end?

  3. Could you provides screen shots of any settings/blueprints that may be involved?

  4. Does this happen with default assets in the editor or does this only occur with assets (static meshes) that you have created?

Hello Sir,

So First sorry for my late reply,

  1. I was not able

  2. I Mainly use ( beneath the some math i Do From Getting Scales/Location/ETC ), the set World Scale, set Location & Rotation on static Mesh Component, in Editor( Blutility )

  3. I send You U some ScreenShots, but what you can't see i describe here: x) I Use One Type OF Blueprint ("Example_BP") and just replaces the root Static Mesh Comp for them y) The static mesh was In the procedure of placing : Attached( Also Comp To Comp of Socket ) and than Detached( Keep World ) z) Also I did you wrong, it appears that it's not an Totaly Scale Issue, ( But still it might be that the parrent before was Scaled Negativly ). On the Newest Picture were the same Issue Happend to an Starter Content Mesh, Shows positive scale but still Error with "Inverted Faces ". Can be solved with steps mentioned before. zz)My Procudure is not Very Very Fastest, it may takes some milisseconds to Count the math an place everything. Mayby that's an issue in Blutility ?

  4. Yes, also described in " 3. z)

PS. Do you know any console CMD that refresh The Rendering in Editor ?

Are you using any unofficial plugins? If so, could you remove them and let me know if this issue still occurs?

I have my Own Plugin wich is in the Content Folder. But I cannot remove it and still do this Build afterwards. It is relativly simple, mostly math. and ustruct's. But i have Victory Plugin wich is also unnoficial. Beyond that official substance and Rama Save and Log Profiler . Do you know mayby some commands wich emulate the refreshning the Mesh Comp. insde Editor ?

In order to assist you further, we will need to rule out the potential cause being the plugins that you are using. I will need you to reproduce this issue without any of the plugins mentioned above. If the issue no longer occurs after removing the plugins you will need to speak with the creators of the plugins for further assistance as we do not provide support for unofficial plugins.

Eureka, the problem of the "Inverted Faces" Was caused due the use of "Moveable" Setting with the Static Mesh Component. After Setting it "Static" it started to work like it should.
