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"

[Closed] Packaging Results in Map file size Explosion

I'm packaging using UnrealFrontend on a github'd 4.7.1 for Win64. I've taken the 3rd person sample template and replaced the static mesh.

Before Packaging, looking in the content folder: ThirdPersonExampleMap.umap: 27,374 KB

After packaging: ThirdPersonExampleMap.umap: 226,728 KB

That's almost 10x growth!?

I've looked through the frontend log but nothing is jumping out at me. I poked around the .umap file in a hex editor and it looks like a sparse file with repeated data fields, lots of identical content and lots of empty bits.

I'm guessing the problem is some funky referenced asset, but how do I find which one? Can someone teach me how to dissect this problem further to find the root problem? What logs do I need to look at, what tools can I use? The map plays fine otherwise.

I'm also seeing this in an unmodified Side Scroller project.
