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"

adding simple (box?) collision to multiple objects?

Hi. Is there a way to add collision areas to multiple objects at once? I have imported a building scene from 3ds max via datasmith and I would like to add collisions to the floors and walls. I think in earlier versions of UE there was a option for this in the Property Matrix, but I can't find it in the latest release (4.21).

Any advise?

Thank you!

Product Version: UE 4.21

Hey there, have a look at this doc for some help on batch-setting collisions via blueprint. Another idea would be to create them in Max using the UCX_meshname prefix (duplicate the objects, rename them with the prefix, and remove the last 3 characters to get rid of the numbering Max gives them) - this should make the engine automatically recognize and assign them as the simplified collision channel per mesh.

Thanks! I think this blueprint and python scriptings goes over my head because I haven't used UE so much. Would like to learn those though. For now, I will do and try that UCX_meshname thingy.

Thank you.
