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"

Composite collision actor

I'm trying to build a hierarchy of overlapping UPrimitiveComponents where the root is the only simulating component. Something to the effect of this;

 Sphere (Simulating/Collision)
  Cube (Collision)
    Sphere (Collision)
    Sphere (Collision)

Now when you set up an actor like this, all the interpenetrating bodies are considered colliding, the simulation attempts to separate them, and naturally your actor goes shooting off in some random direction.

It seems to me that any child component marked as not simulating but has collision enabled should participate in the root component's shape set or something rather then the current more or less undefined behaviour. Am I simply missing something?

Hi Kyle,

This is actually a feature that is coming for 4.5 where you can weld multiple bodies together so that they simulate as a single rigid body with correct mass distribution etc...

It's already on github if you'd like to give it a try.
