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"

Losing visuals as I design simple levels


I'm very new to UE and I am starting with a tutorial and creating dead simple rooms to get a feel for things. When I add a simple cube to the level (trying to fashion them into walls) everything works fine. It's when I add a second cube do things become problematic. The second cube either shows up transparent/invisible or some of the sides are invisible. What am I doing wrong?

I'm using a Gen9 i5 CPU with a 1070Ti GPU with 16GB RAM and an m2 drive.

Any feedback would be very appreciative. Thank you!

What happens if you start a new default level and repeat the steps?

Have you tried starting a whole new project and repeat the steps to see if that creates the same issue?

I have tried a different project all together with the hopes that would solve the issue - but no change. Thank you!

If this is something you have modeled yourself. Make sure the normals of the faces are properly setup and pointing in the correct direction.

One cube was introduced necessary to flatten it into a wall Second cube is missing two sides when introduced the flooring Any ideas why this is occurring?

Thank you!

Try setting the wall with a thickness more than 0, and see if that changes anything.

Unfortunately, it does not give me the option to change 'wall thickness' for it is grayed out.
