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"

Overlap event only works when its surface intersect an object? [BUG?]

Hello everyone,

I was trying to implement overlap events with this object (pyramid). It's interesting that the overlap events only work when its surface intersects with an object. If an object is inside of the pyramid (in the other words, if they no longer intersect each other but still the object is inside of the pyramid), it fires end overlap event as if the object is outside of the pyramid. If I replace the object with cube, cylinder, or any other meshes; it works well. They fire end overlap events if the object is really outside of their inside.

Is there a bug if I use cone-based shapes?

Here's the fbx file if someone wants to try.
