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"

Static Mesh child collides with parent (Appeared in 4.21)

Have this simple setup for assembling robots from multiple parts, by attachind them to the sockets of the parent Skeletal Mesh. Until now, everything worked rather well, but in 4.21, when I turn on Simulate Physics on the parent, the robots start to fly around the scene (Static Mesh child collides with the parent).

It seems that disabling collision in Physics Editor between the bodies no longer propagates to the children atached to those bodies (via sockets, with Auto-Weld turned on). Found kind of a workaround - adding Constraints between all those physics bodies that shouldn't collide, and checking "Disable Collision" there in Details. But it's a bit far from being elegant.

The question is - is it a bug, or just me doing something wrong?)
