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"

Add collision component to apex clothing

I know many apex collision questions have been asked, but I have not yet seen an answer to the question I have. I bought this plugin from the marketplace: https://www.unrealengine.com/marketplace/sport-soccer and in the description, there is a disclaimer saying that apex clothing does not yet collide with world objects, so the goal net will not react to the ball.

However, I thought of a workaround. To have a collision sphere inside the dynamic mesh of the goal net that tracks the position of the ball when in the goal, and pushes the next around the same way that a ball would, also setting the position of the ball to be wherever the collision sphere currently is. I have tried adding a sphere collider to the physics asset of the net but I cannot manage to separate the sphere from the rest of the mesh

I don't really want to go editing the 3d model because it works so seamlessly with the rest of the plugin, so changing the scale or anything else may throw off the rest of the pack.

If anyone has a way to implement my solution, or a different solution altogether, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

1 answer: sort voted first

I got it to work in the end by:
​​​​​​​1: Creating a collision channel and object for the goal net, which blocks everything but IGNORES THE GOAL POSTS
2: Creating a collision channel and object for the goal post which blocks everything but IGNORES THE GOAL NET
3: Turning on "Simulate physics" on the goal nets

This resulted in a nice ripple effect when the ball hits, and I will make the material of the net less bouncy (or not bouncy at all) to make the ball not bounce off the back. However for this to work you need a mesh that already has working apex clothing simulation on it, and you need some collision boxes/capsules/spheres in your physics component for the object (in this case the goal net).
