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"

Custom collision geometry for skeletal meshes

I am in the process of getting my PC pawn class to work. It's a robot that is put together in different pieces based on data. Right now it's two SkeletalMeshComponents that get set at runtime.

The problem is collision. I can't use the capsule, and simple runtime generation won't work. I'm not using physics and so don't want to use the physics assets.

What I really want is to define the collision shapes in Maya and import them when I import the meshes. But, this doesn't appear to work.

A very simple case where I name a box UBX_hull (when one of my meshes is hull) - the importer sees it but it doesn't appear anywhere.

TL;DR : Is it possible to define custom collision shapes in Maya for skeletal meshes?
