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"

[Suggestion] Level Streaming

I was reading about how to set up level streaming to be distance based in this artcile: https://rocket.unrealengine.com/docs/ue4/INT/Editor/LevelEditing/LevelStreaming/UserGuide/index.html

My suggestion is wouldn't a combination of this and level streaming volumes be the easiest solution? IE use a level streaming volume to define the area of the level you want to stream in and then simply have a "distance" parameter that you can specify on the volume to have the level stream in when the player is X units away from any edge? Seems a much easier way to visualize everything and a more simple setup as well.

Just a thought.

Hi Peter,

Thank you for your feedback.

have a "distance" parameter that you can specify on the volume to have the level stream in when the player is X units away from any edge

The radius would simply be a larger volume around the already existing volume. You would solve this by scaling the volume to cover all of the area you want the streaming to begin from instead. I am not sure how a radius around the volume would be any different from simply scaling the volume larger, but if you can explain the benefit, I can put in a feature request.

Yes, very good point. I was simply reading about the idea of having it distance based rather than volume based and came up with a suggestion for a more stream lined configuration without really thinking through what the need for it would be :P

I'm now curious why the article even mentions distance based streaming and how to set it up? I can't for the life of me think of a reason why this would be better than volume based streaming.
