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"

why Can't get Overlap event with the ground?

Hi guys.

I'm trying to do a simple game example where the player can place things in the ground, what I want to do, is to change my mesh into green if possition is OK to be placed, and set it in Red if possition is invalid.

For this example, invalid = Below or overlapping my ground.

Here is in the air, so I set the color in green, looks good. alt text

But here i'm overlaping the box with the ground, and I tried all configurations possible and still I can't get to raise Overlaps events, but just for the ground, it works fine when colliding with actors.

alt text

Can somebody guide me how to achieve this properly? Maybe I need to do another approach?

Thanks in advice

Make sure both meshes are set to Generate Overlap Events.
