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"

Set location of Destructible Component's chunks


I try to find a way to unload a destructible mesh and reload it while still being broken into pieces. I wanted to take location values for each chunk and then set them up on reload.

The problem is I don't find any information about set location of Destructible Component's chunks. I'm not sure it is possible in Blueprint.

Any information is appreciated.

Except for fancy work in the source code, there is no way to do this.

You're best bet, if you want to carry it over between levels, is to use level streaming. If you just want your player to not see it momentarily, you can just hide it.

If you basically need it to be destroyed in the same way twice over two levels, you can save the impact data from the first and just replicate it in the second level while the screen is black or the viewport is looking away. The differences in the outcomes should be very minor as long as you don't get any frame hitching while either are happening.

From what I read until now, I think you are absolutely right. There are some info for C++ but not to much for blueprint.

Thank you for your answer.
