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"

Grass Tool Spawns in Air

Hi! I'm using the Landscape Grass tool to place groundcover foliage on the grassy parts of my landscape, but the spawned foliage is frequently floating in the air at odd angles, never more than a meter above where it should be. I have tried the commands RemoveLandscapeXYOffsets and grass.flushcache with no effect.

Is there a way around this bug?

Interestingly, the first grass type array (the short grass on the ground) does not seem to exhibit the behavior, but when I added more types to the same array, the problem persists with the new types.alt text

Someone showed me the answer on the forums. https://forums.unrealengine.com/development-discussion/rendering/1505249-grass-tool-spawning-in-air

My mesh pivot point was off because of a blender export setting, so the foliage was just rotating into the air.
