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"

Car Skeletal Mesh Breaks Apart When Simulating Physics

I made a car mesh in Maya 2018. The car consists of a body mesh, chassis front, chassis back, and 4 wheels. I did parent the wheels to the chassis and the chassis to the body frame in Maya. With all the parts in a hierarchy I exported as FBX and imported it into the unreal engine. My problem is when I set the physics for the car and simulate it the entire car scatters into pieces. Even when I hit play in my level the car breaks apart. How do I fix it where when I simulate the physics the car sits still? I watched so many tutorials of importing vehicles into UE4 but NONE of them describe how to make a car model suited for UE4 and the complications behind that. The tuts I watched had an already made model and it frustrates me how the modeling process is not shown or behind the scenes of creating the model and making it ready for UE4. Any help is appreciated.
