Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

What is the best method for creating a large number of background type characters (non player controlled) walking around a level?

What is the best method for creating a large number of background type characters (non player controlled) walking around a level? I want to have around 200 people walking around in a city and right now I can get my characters into a level (all using the same skeleton) and I have animation applied to them. I can get the playable character to work, and I have a level blueprint that can command another character to walk from target to target, but right now I can't get that same thing to happen with a pawn blueprint. Anyone had success with this type of thing?

Looked into this more and it now looks like Crowd may be the best way to do this.
