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"

Object with custom collision not displaying correctly

I have made an object with custom collision in 3DS Max, see picturealt text

However when it is imported into Unreal it only displays half of the object, but when viewed from the other side it would display the other side of the object. Does anyone know why it is doing this? The collision works completely fine, it even works on the side of the object that is not displaying. alt text alt text

Hi, Make sure your material is set to "two-sided" If the mesh/object has no material assigned create one and set it to two-sided. The issue is that you use planes and the normals to display (render/calculate) are directed outwards. (That's why you can look through the plane from the inside)

Make sure all normals are facing the correct way. (You then don't need a two-sided material)
