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"

NavMesh fail to rebuild at runtime dynamic obstacles

Hi !

i came to hit a strange bug with dynamic obstacles, when an obstacle moved, the nav mesh has to rebuild the area, so it discard it, but never rebuild it...

at runtime : pic0 pic1

By luck, i found that if i make the area to be rebuild in editor and try again, it does work (only for this area, other still buggy) , and after rebuilding the full mesh, everything works again.

The nav mesh rebuild is buggy on one of my coworker computer, so we disabled the auto one, and only i rebuild it from time to time, so the mesh was few weeks old ( but it was already a 4.17.2 one ). so the lvl had changed a bit, but not that specific part of the lvl

So i'm not asking for a fix as the workaournd is good enough and 90%+ of people probably have auto nav mesh generation. But just posting this so you guys know it exist, and if somebody has the same problem he doesn't loose half a day thinking he broke something :p

have a good day ! :) Additional infos:

-c++ project, 4.17.2, from luncher binaries

-my "runtime Generation" Setting is "Dynamic modifiers only"

-it does work on an other smaller test map in the same game with similar settings

-it does work if i set Runtime Generation to "Dynamic" but i don't want a full rebuild of areas
