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"

Multiplayer Instancing


In our current Project we are looking at ways to deal with multiple instances of maps, but I can't quite figure out the best approach, planned as follows:

One Big Landmass Map, here you just travel from point to point, upon entering a Point the Client is loaded into the Map associated with that point.

Big Locations like Main Cities are supposed to be run at all times on the Server, while smaller instances for Adventure or similar are supposed to be only loaded for one Player as an Instance, and when the Player leaves it is unloaded.

Using Map Load it crashes if I try to load on only one Client, or it loads the Map for everyone connected.

I thought of using Streaming, with the big map being the Consistent Map and all others being Streamed only when there is Players inside them, but I'm not sure if that is very effective as gamemode must be changed between Maps, it would also not really create Instancing since a Map that is being streamed is not replicated for each player.

Any Ideas or Pointers would be very appreciated.

Regards Peter
