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"

Convert an object to static during runtime

Hello, I would like to convert an object to static mobility during runtime. Currently, I have a static object that is identical to the moveable object, so I spawn the static and delete the moveable. Is this the only way to do it, or is there a way to keep the same object?

Edit: The main use of this is to customize an object then lock it in place, a process I cannot do currently.

Yes, you can do it with the same object.

You can do it by setting "Simulate Physics" and "Enable Gravity" to off when you want it to stop moving and lock in its place.

Target should be your static mesh.

I've tried that, however it seems to disable collision with the mesh, so I cannot place objects ontop of the static object.
