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"

Turn object on and off

I have two different cylinder meshes with different maps for exterior view (client wanted exterior to be seen from two different heights) and i want to be able to turn one of them off and on on a button press. Note that i am total beginner in UE.

Thank you in advance for the help !

i think you need to explain a bit more on this one. for instance what do you mean by exterior view? and what do you mean by turn them off and on?

if your just trying to make the meshes not visible then use the set hidden in game node or toggle visibility.

if your so new why do you have clients?

Sorry should have posted an update that i was able to resolve my issue. By exterier view i mean that i had an office interior where i can move around and two huge ass cylinders around it, with drone shot panoramic photos in emissive slot for exterior view. Anyway i will attatch an image that i used to resolve this in case anyone will run into same issue alt text
