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"

Event on hit for Skeletal Mesh while simulating physics?

Hey guys. I'm using the FirstPerson Template's gun and trying to use the mannequin (SKELETAL MESH) as bullets. My plan is to shoot the mannequin as a ragdoll and use the "event hit". But my problem is, if the skeletal mesh has the "Simulate Physics" disabled I can get the hits from collisions but no ragdoll, just as if static. And whenever I enable the "Simulate Physics" on the skeletal mesh, I get the ragdoll effect that I want but it stops detecting hits and collisions. I THINK the collisions are working properly, but I can't get on hit events for the ragdoll. What might be the problem?

i guess the Skeletal Mesh has not capsula, sphere or box trigger... so there is nothing to overlap with?

Thanks for the reply, but I think I got it. I was checking Simulate Generate On Hit Events only in the SKmesh on the Blueprint, but after I select all the collision capsules on my Skmesh it's working.
