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"

Static Mesh Actor has NULL StaticMesh property

I keep getting this warning, I have read the other post about this, but it does not help. My mesh has a static mesh, but it keeps coming out null after building, and still shows my mesh within the info panel after build. As you can see in pictures, before lighting build it has a material, and static mesh applied, and after the build, you can still see them applied, but the object in the world is black.

check the world outliner, there is a mesh-actor without a mesh. thats generally the only reason you'd get this error.

As you can see in the pictures the mesh is front and center, has mesh and material, but once lighting builds it goes black, and still continues to hold the mesh and material after the build, but just becomes pure black

you arent looking at the world outliner. it has nothing to do with the meshes you can see, but a mesh-actor that you cant see. none of the images shows the world outliner.

so what ur saying is, if one actor doesn't have a mesh it brakes everything in the world, which I don't find true, because my "ball" player would also be black

But I will test it

I had this issue previously, i reexported the mesh in blender and it seemed to solve the problem!

Can you post a picture of your output with the error and the object's detail page from your map?

I can upload a pic of the error, but there is no details to it. It doesn't state which actors/meshs are causing the error, just states it. And the objects detail page is in the screen shot, is there something specific within the detail panel you want to see? I made sure to include the mesh and material assigned to it before, and after build

alright, so apparently this wasn't causing my mesh's to go black. I thought it was, not sure why they are pure black after lighting build, but I saw the one in the world outliner with no mesh that I removed and don't get the error anymore, guess I'm going to have to find out why they are blacking out after build, but not before

if its black, your mesh probably doesnt have a lightmap.
