Developer Notes

The Trigger Actor has Actor Hidden In Game set to true, this means all components that it owns will be hidden.


Static mesh components spawned and added to a trigger actor results in them being invisible.

This does not occur if the user uses an actor with a collision component.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Download and extract the attached project.
  2. Open the project in editor.
  3. Play in viewport.
  4. Walk forward into the trigger
    • The trigger cannot be made visible but should be right in front of the player.


The static mesh component will be spawned but is not visible (though the player will still have collision)
