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"

[Request] Make MergeStaticMeshActors node work the same way the Merge Actors tool does

I'm currently including the Interactable Tree Creator asset from the marketplace into my workflow and gave Blutilities a shot for automating merging of single trees with and without LOD creation, since currently there still is quite some manual work necessary for that.

After recreating the manual workflow in a Blutility, I had to find out that the MergeStaticMeshActors node (from EditorScriptingUtilities) doesn't work with a single actor (verified in engine code) like the Merge Actors tool does. So I also couldn't test yet if this node already works with procedural meshes ( see https://forums.unrealengine.com/unreal-engine/feedback-for-epic/1398321-merge-actors-for-procedural-mesh for reference), but since both code paths even share function calls into the MergeUtility class, it should be straight forward to align them to work similar.

Please consider this for making streamlining and automating similar worksflows possible via Blueprints.
