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"

Can't remove a series of MeshInstances in an array

So I'm trying to make an explosion that destroys a bunch of trees that are MeshInstances.

I'm not having trouble hitting or detecting the Instances. The problem comes when I try to delete them. Because they are referenced by an array of INTs; as soon as you delete the first one (in a for loop for example) it resizes the array and then all the INT refs you had for the other meshes become invalid and they can't be deleted reliably anymore.

Anyone have a solution to this?

If anyone runs into this same issue, there's a BP function called "RemoveInstances" that will remove multiple at a time. I'm not sure how I missed this but found it today.
