What is the difference between Block and Overlap?
For that matter what are BLOCKING and OVERLAPPING? They seem the exact same to me. A collision happens. I bought a $50 Unreal Physics book, Want to hear it's recursive definition of 'Block'?
"Block All: This collision preset causes all the collisions with the associated component to result in a block all."
WTF is that?!?!? $50 for that? I bet the next page will say:
"Overlap All: This collision preset causes all the collisions with the associated component to result in an Overlap."
(oh no, I had to check, the only different word from above is they say 'generate' an overlap. HAHAHAAH LLOLOLOL Wow,. I did not want to be right.
Like the Dad from Beetlejuice says: "This reads like Stereo Instructions!"
Is there even a difference in the outcome of Block and Overlap? See, because BLOCK sounds to me like it will BLOCK something that collides with it, BUT THAT IS WHAT OVERLAP DOES!!! I use Overlap in the game I am shelving because I couldn't get any answers or help here or the Forum, or Discourse, ETC. (also with a tiny physics problem, my character stops suddenly upon collision, but NO ONE seems to know what to do or is willing to help!).
Why is there no PHYSICS Category here?

Block - will physically block the component and trigger hit event
Overlap - won't block the component and it allow to overlap, still it will trigger overlap events, "generate overlap" means generation of overlap event as the object still goes thru collision process
Ignore - It will also overlap but it won't trigger the collision processing at all and there for no event will rise
Maybe problem is else where like wrong collision channel. What is you case and how it is configured on bogh character and whatever it hit and suppose to overlap?
