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"

How to break destructible meshes only under certain conditions

Currently Ive got some basic barrels in my game that break in chunks instantaneously when touched by anything. Any tips to make it break only when hit with a strong amount of force. My character swings a sword and rolls. I kinda wanna try to fix it with blueprint cause their is a bp version of it meant to drop items. Any method should suffice though as the item spawns upon destruction of the mesh.

You can set up damage force/strength need to break destructible and/or use Damage Type. Also you can check - add damage or not. If hit actor is barrel - apply radial impulse - if not - do not apply. It will be break it and only barrel.
