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"

UCollisionProfile::ConvertToCollisionChannel does not behave as expected

Hello, I'm currently working with custom object types for collision and I've found something really weird in the source code of UCollisionProfile::ConvertToCollisionChannel.

 ECollisionChannel UCollisionProfile::ConvertToCollisionChannel(bool TraceType, int32 Index) const
     if (TraceType)
         if ( TraceTypeMapping.IsValidIndex(Index) )
             return TraceTypeMapping[Index];
         if ( ObjectTypeMapping.IsValidIndex(Index) )
             return ObjectTypeMapping[Index];
     // invalid
     return ECC_MAX;

It came from a call to SphereOverlapActors which is given a const TArray<TEnumAsByte<EObjectTypeQuery> > & ObjectTypes

this will take the EObjectTypeQuery as an int and give it to UCollisionProfile::ConvertToCollisionChannel. The problem is that ObjectTypeMapping does not look like EObjectTypeQuery, so it is impossible that ObjectTypeMapping[Index] returns the good ECollisionChannel.

For example if you give ECC_PhysicBody to the function SphereOverlapActors, it will be converted to the ECollisionChannel ECC_Destructible.

I found this not normal at all, but I'm not very good with unreal collision yet, so maybe I'm using it wrong.
