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"

Settings To Modify When Transferring a BP For A Static Mesh To A Skeletal Mesh?

In the first-person project I'm currently working on, among the interactive elements I have in the level are a couple pushable vehicles. These vehicles, up until now, were static meshes built from geometry edited brushes converted into SM's, and the pushing behavior is an input-based, line trace and Timeline-using Blueprint behavior rather than having the vehicles have physics enabled, because I wanted to specifically control the pace and amount of movement the actors have in the scene when the player interacts with them.

However, as I'm moving into a later stage in the project I'm now making efforts to improve the look of the world, and as my focus is on design rather than art, I've purchased some new vehicle assets off the marketplace for that aspect of the game. However, these are skeletal meshes rather than the static I had been using, and I've found that the script on the placeholder static BP's has no effect of any kind on these new skeletal meshes. Undoubtedly the problem lies in the different nature of the skeletal meshes, but I'm unsure what I should be modifying to achieve the same effect. I was hoping for a recommendation if one of you has already had this come up before and figured it out. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
