DESCRIPTION: Set nodes for Physical Material parameters are no longer accessible via Level Blueprint.

AH Post:

By Design:

Modifying those variables would modify the asset, not a local instance, so the variables were made read only.

Steps to Reproduce



1. Open UE4 Version 4.6
2. Place a mesh in the level scene
3. Open Level BP
4. Place a reference to the mesh in Level BP
5. Drag pin off and Get Material
6. Drag a pin off return value to Get Physical Material
7. Drag a pin off return value and type in "Set"

Expected: There will be the option to set physical material parameters such as density, restitution, Friction, etc.

RESULTS: The "Set" nodes for physical Material parameters are missing. The only one left is "Set Override Friction Combine Mode."
