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"

Hey Patrick,

There is currently no event for detecting when a destructible mesh is fractured. There is an On Actor Fracture and On Component Fracture custom event node coming in 4.3, so you should see them in the next update.

I can`t find any thing in the docs, did i overlook them? I preferly do this in C++ btw. Thanks for any direction.

I don't believe the documentation has been updated for this yet, but the nodes exist now. In Blueprints, you can search for Fracture and see the different types available. I'm not sure where this exists in C++, though.

I can't figure out how to get this to work. Could you possibly explain?

Here's my setup (a blueprint that spawns a bunch of random destructible mesh actors):

and when I try to bind an event to the destructible's destruction it says that my destructible is not compatible.
