When working on the Landscape in the Current version of Unreal. 4.13.1, I noticed an odd offset with Landscape Collision and the holes made with the Landscape Visibility tool.
It’s more noticeable with smaller holes made, but it would appear that the collision made is partially offset from the actual hole displayed on the Landscape. (see pic below)
Now, i’m not a pro at the new landscape tool, but is this a possible bug? Because of this, I can shoot or fall through visible terrain on one side, while i can collide/stand on and have shots blocked by invisible terrain on the other.
Create a new ‘default’ map that at least allows you to spawn in
Create a new Landscape terrain (i shrank my section size to 7x7 quads just to make it a tad smaller)
When ‘creating’ the landscape, it’s not necessary to apply a terrain material to it just yet.
Find and edit the default material “M_Ground_Grass” to make it accept a Landscape Visbility Mask node.
4b. to do this, change its “Blend Mode” to ‘Masked’, then add the Landscape Visibility Mask, and attach it to the Opacity Mask input of the Main Material Node?
once finished, and saved, assign the newly edited Material to the Landscape
Edit the landscape’s visibility now, and create a small hole or channel, roughly say, 32 units wide, and another that’s roughly 64 units wide.
Now, play in PIE, and shoot at the holes.
Notice, that along the Y Axis, the collision seems to be offset by 16 units.
8b. this means you can shoot into the terrain along one side, and then shots bounce off invisible collision along the other side of the hole.
Now, walk along the edges and observe how you can either fall through or not, depending on which side of the hole.
Thanks for the clear and precise repro steps. I was able to confirm what you are reporting and have gone ahead and entered a bug report for the issue. You can track the issue following the link below on our public issues tracker.
I know this is a super old thread and the reported issue hasn’t been resolved. But have you tried adjusting the Collision Mip Level for the landscape? The higher the collision mip, the lower resolution of of collision and nav will build on it.
