Editor Properties: (see get_editor_property/set_editor_property)

  • absolute_location (bool): [Read-Write] If RelativeLocation should be considered relative to the world, rather than the parent
  • absolute_rotation (bool): [Read-Write] If RelativeRotation should be considered relative to the world, rather than the parent
  • absolute_scale (bool): [Read-Write] If RelativeScale3D should be considered relative to the world, rather than the parent
  • asset_user_data (Array(AssetUserData)): [Read-Write] Array of user data stored with the component
  • auto_activate (bool): [Read-Write] Whether the component is activated at creation or must be explicitly activated.
  • can_ever_affect_navigation (bool): [Read-Write] Whether this component can potentially influence navigation
  • component_tags (Array(Name)): [Read-Write] Array of tags that can be used for grouping and categorizing. Can also be accessed from scripting.
  • detail_mode (DetailMode): [Read-Write] If detail mode is >= system detail mode, primitive won’t be rendered.
  • directional_inscattering_color (LinearColor): [Read-Write] Controls the color of the directional inscattering, which is used to approximate inscattering from a directional light. Note: there must be a directional light with bUsedAsAtmosphereSunLight enabled for DirectionalInscattering to be used.
  • directional_inscattering_exponent (float): [Read-Write] Controls the size of the directional inscattering cone, which is used to approximate inscattering from a directional light. Note: there must be a directional light with bUsedAsAtmosphereSunLight enabled for DirectionalInscattering to be used.
  • directional_inscattering_start_distance (float): [Read-Write] Controls the start distance from the viewer of the directional inscattering, which is used to approximate inscattering from a directional light. Note: there must be a directional light with bUsedAsAtmosphereSunLight enabled for DirectionalInscattering to be used.
  • editable_when_inherited (bool): [Read-Write] True if this component can be modified when it was inherited from a parent actor class
  • enable_volumetric_fog (bool): [Read-Write] Whether to enable Volumetric fog. Scalability settings control the resolution of the fog simulation. Note that Volumetric fog currently does not support StartDistance, FogMaxOpacity and FogCutoffDistance. Volumetric fog also can’t match exponential height fog in general as exponential height fog has non-physical behavior.
  • fog_cutoff_distance (float): [Read-Write] Scene elements past this distance will not have fog applied. This is useful for excluding skyboxes which already have fog baked in.
  • fog_density (float): [Read-Write] Global density factor.
  • fog_height_falloff (float): [Read-Write] Height density factor, controls how the density increases as height decreases. Smaller values make the visible transition larger.
  • fog_inscattering_color (LinearColor): [Read-Write] Fog Inscattering Color
  • fog_max_opacity (float): [Read-Write] Maximum opacity of the fog. A value of 1 means the fog can become fully opaque at a distance and replace scene color completely, A value of 0 means the fog color will not be factored in at all.
  • fully_directional_inscattering_color_distance (float): [Read-Write] Distance at which InscatteringColorCubemap should be used directly for the Inscattering Color.
  • hidden_in_game (bool): [Read-Write] Whether to hide the primitive in game, if the primitive is Visible.
  • inscattering_color_cubemap (TextureCube): [Read-Write] Cubemap that can be specified for fog color, which is useful to make distant, heavily fogged scene elements match the sky. When the cubemap is specified, FogInscatteringColor is ignored and Directional inscattering is disabled.
  • inscattering_color_cubemap_angle (float): [Read-Write] Angle to rotate the InscatteringColorCubemap around the Z axis.
  • inscattering_texture_tint (LinearColor): [Read-Write] Tint color used when InscatteringColorCubemap is specified, for quick edits without having to reimport InscatteringColorCubemap.
  • is_editor_only (bool): [Read-Write] If true, the component will be excluded from non-editor builds
  • mobility (ComponentMobility): [Read-Write] How often this component is allowed to move, used to make various optimizations. Only safe to set in constructor.
  • non_directional_inscattering_color_distance (float): [Read-Write] Distance at which only the average color of InscatteringColorCubemap should be used as Inscattering Color.
  • on_component_activated (ActorComponentActivatedSignature): [Read-Write] Called when the component has been activated, with parameter indicating if it was from a reset
  • on_component_deactivated (ActorComponentDeactivateSignature): [Read-Write] Called when the component has been deactivated
  • override_light_colors_with_fog_inscattering_colors (bool): [Read-Write] Whether to use FogInscatteringColor for the Sky Light volumetric scattering color and DirectionalInscatteringColor for the Directional Light scattering color. Make sure your directional light has ‘Atmosphere Sun Light’ enabled! Enabling this allows Volumetric fog to better match Height fog in the distance, but produces non-physical volumetric lighting that may not match surface lighting.
  • physics_volume_changed_delegate (PhysicsVolumeChanged): [Read-Write] Delegate that will be called when PhysicsVolume has been changed *
  • primary_component_tick (ActorComponentTickFunction): [Read-Write] Main tick function for the Component
  • relative_location (Vector): [Read-Write] Location of the component relative to its parent
  • relative_rotation (Rotator): [Read-Write] Rotation of the component relative to its parent
  • relative_scale3d (Vector): [Read-Write] Non-uniform scaling of the component relative to its parent. Note that scaling is always applied in local space (no shearing etc)
  • replicates (bool): [Read-Write] Is this component currently replicating? Should the network code consider it for replication? Owning Actor must be replicating first!
  • second_fog_data (ExponentialHeightFogData): [Read-Write] Settings for the second fog. Setting the density of this to 0 means it doesn’t have any influence.
  • should_update_physics_volume (bool): [Read-Write] Whether or not the cached PhysicsVolume this component overlaps should be updated when the component is moved. GetPhysicsVolume():
  • start_distance (float): [Read-Write] Distance from the camera that the fog will start, in world units.
  • use_attach_parent_bound (bool): [Read-Write] If true, this component uses its parents bounds when attached. This can be a significant optimization with many components attached together.
  • visible (bool): [Read-Write] Whether to completely draw the primitive; if false, the primitive is not drawn, does not cast a shadow.
  • volumetric_fog_albedo (Color): [Read-Write] The height fog particle reflectiveness used by volumetric fog. Water particles in air have an albedo near white, while dust has slightly darker value.
  • volumetric_fog_distance (float): [Read-Write] Distance over which volumetric fog should be computed. Larger values extend the effect into the distance but expose under-sampling artifacts in details.
  • volumetric_fog_emissive (LinearColor): [Read-Write] Light emitted by height fog. This is a density so more light is emitted the further you are looking through the fog. In most cases skylight is a better choice, however right now volumetric fog does not support precomputed lighting, So stationary skylights are unshadowed and static skylights don’t affect volumetric fog at all.
  • volumetric_fog_extinction_scale (float): [Read-Write] Scales the height fog particle extinction amount used by volumetric fog. Values larger than 1 cause fog particles everywhere absorb more light.
  • volumetric_fog_scattering_distribution (float): [Read-Write] Controls the scattering phase function - how much incoming light scatters in various directions. A distribution value of 0 scatters equally in all directions, while .9 scatters predominantly in the light direction. In order to have visible volumetric fog light shafts from the side, the distribution will need to be closer to 0.
  • volumetric_fog_static_lighting_scattering_intensity (float): [Read-Write] Volumetric Fog Static Lighting Scattering Intensity
