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"

I fall through my floor!

I have a static mesh for my cave floor. But I fall through it. Im using the Third Person Example from Epic Games. I set the collision from the floor to "blockall" and usually I dont fall through it?! Hopefully some of you got ideas how to fix this.

Product Version: UE 4.17

Take a look at this page and see if it helps: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Content/Types/StaticMeshes/HowTo/SettingCollision/

My guess is that there is no collision added to the mesh, and you will need to generate it. To do so, open up the mesh in the content browser and open it. Along the top of the window you should see a drop down menu marked "Collision". Beneath that is an option "Auto Convex Collision". Try adding that and see if it makes a difference.

There is also an option in the details panel in which you can set the "Collision complexity". Try adjusting that field too.

I'm not currently able to check this myself, and it's been a while since I messed with mesh collision, so I'm sorry I can't be of more immediate help!

I suspect that you might have un-ticked some kind of collision option on import, and if the problem persists then a reimport may resolve it.

Thank you!! I forgot to set the collision in the mesh editor :) I now have a simple box collision and it is working.

Glad to hear. It's easily done.
