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"

Making a buildable surface in a grid

Hello, We are in the final parts of making a pre-alpha release, what we are having trouble doing is creating a grid to construct on and how to go about creating it. To explain it in the best context think Dungeon keeper 1 & 2 and Evil Genius, the ability to "mine" out an area and construct a grid. How would you go about doing something similar to this in the Unreal Engine 4?

Kind regards, Damion

I'm interested in an answer to this one. I'd imagine you have to store the spacial coordinates of the buildable area, which can then be subdivided into the grid squares. Or by storing the center point of each grid square. But I haven't yet tried any of this.
