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 set the Lightmap Coordinate Index in C++?

I am creating Static Meshes in C++ from ProceduralMeshComponent similar to how it is done here, that is:

 FStaticMeshSourceModel* SrcModel = new (StaticMesh->SourceModels) FStaticMeshSourceModel();
 SrcModel->BuildSettings.bRecomputeNormals = false;
 SrcModel->BuildSettings.bRecomputeTangents = false;
 SrcModel->BuildSettings.bRemoveDegenerates = false;
 SrcModel->BuildSettings.bUseHighPrecisionTangentBasis = false;
 SrcModel->BuildSettings.bUseFullPrecisionUVs = false;
 SrcModel->BuildSettings.bGenerateLightmapUVs = true;
 SrcModel->BuildSettings.SrcLightmapIndex = 0;
 SrcModel->BuildSettings.DstLightmapIndex = 1;
 // Copy materials to new mesh
 for (UMaterialInterface* Material : MeshMaterials)

 //Set the Imported version before calling the build
 StaticMesh->ImportVersion = EImportStaticMeshVersion::LastVersion;

 // Build mesh from source

But when I look at the meshes created like that in the Unreal Editor, they all have their Lightmap Coordinate Index set to the channel 0, which is wrong, since the automatical lightmap UVs are created in the channel 1. How can I change the channel upon mesh creation in the code?
