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"

I can't find the Collision Tab

Hello, I am new to UE4 and following a tutorial to learn, but their version is older than my 4.21 one. I am using their 3D model that we set up in 3DStudio Max and now I am in UE4 and trying to add collision to the walls of my building but not inside, so we can navigate into the building. But, I cannot find the Collision tab. I am in the Editor for the object, but there is no tab. There seems to already be a collision added to the object (though I thought I unclicked that box at Import into the Mesh folder), but I can't edit it or delete it. I added a screenshot to where I believe the Collision Tab shold be. Thank you for your time.

i would guess that your issue is due to your object being a skeletal mesh and not a static mesh. there may be some collision settings in the details panel but i believe that skeletal mesh collision is usually handled by the physics object (could be wrong though).

ThompsonN13 -- Yes! You are right. I didn't even know what a skeletal mesh was, but I must have clicked on it when I imported the file. I reimported it correctly and now it works. Thanks for the help!
