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"

My landscape dissapears when in game view or in play mode but is visible in editor please help.

Recently whenever I click on play my landscape turns invisible but the collision is still there, I don't know what's causing this, and by the way "hide in game" isn't toggled on, please help.

Had the same bug a while ago, I still have no idea how this could happen...

Did you fix it? Is there any workaround or anything?

I've done some research and some of the things I found

  • try re-opening the engine

  • check the default settings as shown on the screenshot below (play around with Desired Max Draw Distance

  • switch your quality settings to epic

I was playing around with it just now, changed the Desired Max Draw Distance then changed it back to 0 and it did disappear. Couldn't get to show again. Trying to replicate it now.

Edit: See if you get the same result when you press play for: Selected Viewport/NewEditorWindow(PIE) and Simulate

I remember that when I pressed simulate, my landscape was visible but when I possessed my character it disappeared, as for the other suggestions I’ll try them out when I've got the time and I'll tell you if it resolves my problem.

At least it's something. It would be great if you could post a solution over here if you find one, I'm following this topic. I will try to give it another go tomorrow, there is a solution and it's probably going to be something ridiculously simple.

Resampling the landscape did the trick now everything works fine, thanks a lot for taking the time to respond.
