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"

Sweep only takes one collision primitve into account

When you use sweep with an mesh that has multiple collision primitives only one is used for the sweep test. affected versions: 4.21 and 4.21.1

works as expected in 4.20.3 and below

This bug is very anoying as we rely on correct sweep detection, because we have a lot of objects with multiple collsion primitives which now we spawn inside of walls.

Howto reproduce: just take one static mesh and setup the simple collsion to use 2 box collision one for the upper half and one for the lower half.

Now create a blueprint actor which has this static mesh as root and add the blueprint node like in the screenshot alt text

Place this acotor a bit floating over the ground and press play in editor after 2 secs. the object will go halfway in the ground. If its not working the first time swap the locaion of both collision primitives in the static mesh, as this time the right one was on the bottom.

If you need a simple project to reproduce it please let me know.

Product Version: UE 4.21

I did submit a bug report, and recently submitted a sample project.

I submitted one in the meantime as well, also including a sample project. Haven't heard anything so far, let's hope something happens now that the holiday season is over...
