      I'm trying to get into game development on linux, But i want an Unity/Unreal like environment to start out with, So i found out Unreal is build-able on linux, and i had a few problems but managed to mess with it enough to get it running, but all the material's are pink for some reason, i'd like advice on how and if i can fix the materials being all pink and super reflective looking, or if there's an alternative i could try similar to Unity/Unreal for linux.

      We are currently seeking two new members for our team, before applying you must be aware that we are seeking people that are 100% committed to this project, you must be reachable within the day, replying to questions or responding to our messages and in general be actively online, otherwise I ask nicely that you do not apply.
      The persons we are seeking are an experienced Programmer with knowledge  in c++, c#, and or unreal script, the c++ and familiarity with unreal is the main thing were seeking, other teams we are currently looking for are 3D artists to work on Humanoid models Props and more, were are also seeking other team members such as Generalists that understands the Unreal Engine, Animators for Human, Non Human and Objects were keeping the team small and having whats needed so feel free to apply.
      [Animators] x 2 [ You will be doing Human, Non Human, and Objects like Machines and Doors, Environment assets. ]
      [3D Artist] x 2 [ You will be focusing on Humans, Objects, and Environment modeling would also like skills in texturing. ]
      [Generalist] x 1 [ We would like someone that has good knowledge of Unreal Engine that can set up anything we need in Engine. ]
      [Writer] x 1 [ We would need someone that can work with me on game documents, organisation of documents story arcs, character development, dialogue creation, text editing and other text related jobs. ]
      [PROGRAMMER] "As above"
      The project is Royalties and when any fund raising is made you will also receive some funding based off that, this is divided depending on amount of work done as an example per asset made toward the game, there are no contracts at this stage and everything known is in documents at the moment.

      Hello Friends,
      i am trying to create a Game developing company, with absolutely zero experience in that. I know it sounds silly, I have experience in running a small business as i have one, but games are something i always wanted to be involved with. So i have an idea of what game i want to create but i have no knowledge in programming, art, music etc. what needs for a game. I will assume the role of the producer and i just want to create some prototype which i will go around with after and try to find investors/publishers. So my question is where i can find, how much and how do people charge for art,3d modelling, is it per 1 character, per hour, what if i want whole race with cities, weapons etc., what about story writers - how much they charge and how? How much charge people who can use Unreal Engine (as i want to use that for my game - FPS) and so on. Meanwhile i am educating myself with game developing and the legal part (contractor agreements,non disclosure etc.) I will be grateful for any info you can give me.

      Hi Everyone 
      We are a distibuted group of youg developers / artists who share a commun goal . we believe in our ability to make high quality games that challenges the status quo and will prove our skills as professional developers/artists.
      The game we are making is a fast paced action game that will try to add to the existing  formula of action combat. it will be a short 1-2 hour adventure set in arabian inspired universe 
      we focus more on giving the best quality possible no matter how short the game will be.
      As we are geeting colser to start the actual game production we are in need of talented environment artists that are interested in the learning process as well as the collaborative experince of game development
      If you are a 3d artist and willing to take part in this journey of learning that will help you build a strong portfolio as well as help you get actual game develoment experience that I would very much be happy to welcome you to this challenge.

Collider not generating "Event Hit"

Recommended Posts

I really don't understand what I'm doing wron here... :S


I have a Box Collision component (I'll call it Collider) Attached to an ArrowComponent (needed only to offset the pivot of the Collider and match the pivot on the mesh) Attached to the player mesh (just a cube).

In the image below you can see my Collider settings:


As you can see from my blueprint image below, I check the last index of the WormPlayer which is the Head (is made out of blocks) and I predict where it is going to be moved, I set the Collider (technically the Parent Arrow, to keep the 5 unit offset on the Z axis that I need) to that location and I have a Branch in there which I'll eventually use to stop the worm body from updating position when we pick a Pickup (since at the pickup spot is spawned a new Head for the Worm, and the Worm doesn't have to move that turn).

Problem is, even though in SetWorldLocation I have the sweep active, the "Event Hit" node is never being called, I am testing it with a printString that says "COLLISION!!!"...and it never happens.

So why is my Hit check failing? :/

I've also made a video to further prove it is not colliding ->> http://i.imgur.com/CQhMUpb.mp4

This is my  Event Hit code , as you can see there is a PrintString in there which never fires.

Well, I actually got it to work by using the OnBeginOverlap event, but this doesn't explain why the HitEvent doesnt work though...

By the way, even though in the image above is unckeched, I also had tried using "Simulation Generates Hit Events", still didn't trigger the Hit Event node...

You do need Simulation Generates Hit Events on. https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Physics/Collision/Overview/#collisionandsimulationgenerateshitevents


What actors are these Blueprints defined on? It looks like you're ading the collision logic to the Pickup, but you're enabling the physics event handling on the Player, so the event doesn't go where you expect it to.

Had it on, but didn't solved :/

The WormPlayer is Apawn. I should point out that the MeshComponent which also happen to be the rootComponent is correctly generating HitEvents. Therefore for how I understand it, either Box Collision can't generate hit events, or it has to be the root component for Hit events to work :/

UP: now experimenting I've replaced overlap event with hit event, and they are getting acually fired ò_ò

I have no idea what's going on, either I somehow "bugged" the editor when I opened the topic, or I fixed something without realizing.

Actually, there is 1 obvious thing I have changed, I didn't liked the chain of parents RootComponent->ArrowComponent->Collider therefore I went in the 3d software and fixed the cube gizmo, so I now have only RootComponent->Collider.

Is is possible that only stuff one level below the RootComponent is considered for hit events?
