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"

Apex Destruction Plugin Missing

So I went to enable Apex destruction in a project via the plugins list, in order to make use of a marketplace plugin that uses it, and I can't find it anywhere. In the physics section of plugins all I have is the marketplace plugin. I checked in project settings and editor settings - nothing about it anywhere there. Googled with every wording I could think of to see if anyone else anywhere had this problem, came up with nothing. All I could find anyone saying was that you just have to enable it in the plugins list and that it comes with the engine.

I checked the installed plugins list in the launcher and it's not in there. I searched the marketplace to see if there's a way to download it (in case that was necessary) and it's not there. I told it to verify the 4.21 installation, and it's just going through the list of installed plugins to verify that each of them is installed correctly. I checked in 4.19 and I don't have the plugin there either. That's the furthest version back that I've got right now, so it seems to be that it's missing entirely from my system, and I have no idea how to get it installed.

Anyone have any ideas what I should do? The only other thing I could find was to check ini settings, but that was only to enable the plugin - that doesn't help if the plugin isn't installed at all.

Product Version: UE 4.21

There's a search bar. It does not show up if you look for apex?

I did try using the search bar everywhere that I tried to check for it. No luck. :(

Do you have this folder? C:\Program Files\Epic Games\UE_4.21\Engine\Plugins\Runtime\ApexDestruction

Ah, thank you - I didn't even think about checking the plugins folder for some reason. I do have that folder, and the uplugin file is there, but it still doesn't show up in engine. Is there a way that I can tell UE to install it or search for it? In a way I'm even more confused now, because it would seem like it should be showing up in the list if the files are there.

Nevermind this question. I'm not sure what corrected it or what caused it - but the problem was that for whatever reason the built-in plugins weren't showing up. They're showing up now.

Might have been a stupid mistake on my part.
