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"

The button marked with the yellow square is disabled here! What I did: 1. Placed a box geometry into the scene after I create a new project.

Am I doing something wrong?

Hi pjrm1470,

Okay, I see now. So BSP Geometry is different from Static Meshes. BSP are a quick way to block out your level and are made to be replace by (or converted to) a static mesh. Once you have a static mesh in your level, the 'Create Blueprint' button will be active.

To convert a BSP to a static mesh, look in the 'Details' panel > 'Brush Settings'. You will need to click the down arrow to drop down the additional options. Choose 'Create Static Mesh'.

You will see lightmap errors on the mesh, this is okay. Find the new static mesh in the 'Content Browser' and double-click to open it. Once opened, go to the 'Details' panel > 'Static Mesh Settings' and change the 'Light Map Resolution' to 32. Save the mesh.
