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"

How to disable "Get Mass" for non-phys objects?

I have a basic line trace pickup script on a tick, in which it requires "get mass" to calculate the mass of an object to see if its eligible to pickup, issue is "get mass" does not commute with non-phys objects, so when the crosshair is on a non-phys object this bug report is spammed: Floor_16.StaticMeshComponent0 1M_Cube has to have 'Simulate Physics' enabled if you'd like to GetMass. Is there a way to prevent non-physics objects from getting their mass?

alt text

here is the print, is there a method of branching "Is simulating physics" to have "Get Mass" disabled if they arent?

BONUS: Ideally I'd want pickup dependent on whether an object is classed as "pickupable" however i tried this method replacing Get Mass with a blueprint class i assigned on the object, but alas it does not compute, if this could be fixed as well i'd be most greatful. Thanks.

Ignore the first question, I managed to make a function out of it which did the job, no error. However, my BONUS question has not been sorted so i'd still appreciate a response on that

Can you get the actor's Simulates Physics bool value? As opposed to Is Simulating Physics
