In UE 4.23 under Editor Preferences, there is a Checkbox: “Landscape Layer System” with which I can enable the new Non-destructive Layer System and the Blueprint Brushes.
Here a Picture:
But in UE 4.24 the Checkbox disappeared and I can no longer use the new Layer system?
I thought I probably need to activate the Landmass Plugin, but this makes no difference…
I just wanna use the new Features showcased in this Video:
In UE4.23 I was able to work with these Features, bot not in UE 4.24 anymore, what am I doing wrong?
Got these Features removed?
OK I found it. In the 4.24 release notes, you enable it directly in the landscape Manage Layers tab:
You can enable the Landscape Edit
Layers feature by checking Edit Layers
under the Manage Layers tab.
this belongs in the comments instead of answers
I think it was transitioned in 4.24 to no longer being experimental. I seem to recall that being mentioned in the 4.24 release notes. Are you able to work with layers/BP brushes without the checkbox checked?
In 4.23 everything works as it should, but I can’t get it working in 4.24.
Are you able to use Landscape Sculpting Layers in 4.24?
If yes, could you please tell me, what I should do differently than in 4.23?
I can’t find a “Manage Layers” tab…
Yes. It is just not where the documentation says it is (not exactly). When you create a new landscape, the tickbox to enable layer editing is right front-and-center (as in picture) at the top of the options.
Ah, this explains everything.
My map has many sublevels and I had to enable edit Layers on the main Landscape, so all the landscapes in my sublevels are getting this also enabled.
Now everything works flawless, Thank you for your help!
