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"

what do you mean a block of liquid? do you just want it to look like say water and have it move a little bit? if so the nyou can make a material for that. or do you want to have a soft body physics simulation? in that case you will need to run the sim in a modeling program to my knowlege.

Yes. Make a cube, then make a liquid material, and put that material on the cube.

the cube will be solid, but look like liquid.

Making a liquid material is tricky if you dont know material creation techniques. You can buy or get for free water materials and replace the color nodes with a parameter. ode which can be altered during gameplay via blueprints

Modify it so the color node is a parameter, then you can change the color during gameplay by making a Material Dynamic Instance from it. Our you can just change the color in regular Material Instances placed in the level without blueprint if it doesn't need to change on command during gameplay.
