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"

"...has to have 'Physics Enabled' if you'd like to GetMass" not true!

Well, I'm not even sure what the bug is really. It's either the warning or it's that we're not supposed to be getting GetMass from an unenabled physics object. Even without enabling physics on a static mesh object, you can GetMass just fine, even edited ones.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. New blank project

  2. Create an Actor BP

  3. Add and make a Static Mesh Component the root

  4. Add a static mesh to the SMC

  5. Go to the Event Graph

  6. On Begin play, GetMass

  7. Use a print string to get that value

  8. (Notice I did not enable physics)

  9. Value of GetMass is displayed and the warning occurs

  10. Go back to the bp

  11. Enable physics

  12. Warning goes away

Edit values if you want. Same results with or without enabling physics.

To be honest, I don't see a reason why we couldn't get the mass from any object, especially if the mass is in outer space... But that's another dilemma.
