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"

RealisticRendering demo objects don't fall

OS: Mac OSX Project: RealisticRendering Engine: 4.4.1

I am on Mac OS and I have opened up the RealisticRendering project from Marketplace.

Specifically I have taken SM_Bowl29 and moved it up a little, it's position is now 8.0f,12.0f,66.0f

I have edited the bowl and made sure that it has collision, I gave it a box collider.

I have set it to movable and pressed play. The bowl just stands in the air.

I looked at the physics component and "Start Awake" is ticked but greyed out.

Also the mass is set to 5.051 and greyed out, stopping me from changing it.

What do I need to do to get Physics on static meshes to move?

Have you checked "simulate physics"? That and starting awake should be enough to make a static mesh fall to the ground. Once you've got it falling, you can worry about collisions, but it sounds like you've already added colliers.

That was it, thanks. I am a total newbie to UDK.
