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"

Simulate Physics Grayed

Hello,

I currently working on a platform, witch can be destroyed by a bomb. I did create a Mesh, add collision; Create a Destructible Mesh from it; Then i create a Blueprint, add this Mesh as skeletal mesh. And try to activate physics, because i wank to be able to walk on it.

You can check my case on the image below.

The DM is ok when i Drag and drop it to the level; i throw my bomb, and the platform is destroyed. But in the blueprint context, the simulate physics boolean is grayed. So nothing append

I am on UE4.3

Any idea ?

Thanks in advance

The answer is simple. I used a Skeletal Mesh Component; instead, when i use a Destructible Component, it work like a charm :)

Make sense isn't it ?

You have to create a physics asset for this skeletal mesh. Right click on the skeletal mesh -> Create -> Create Physics asset.
