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"

Is there a way to change basic to bsp and vice versa without deleting?

So I made this nice, cute room with basic shapes, only to realize that I can't use the subtractive tool on this shape type. Is there a way I can quickly convert all of these shapes to BSP shapes, and vice versa? The room can be rebuilt, sure, but it seems painful if I choose the wrong tool and have to delete and start over again. Thanks.

Hey Yoggi Vizulus,

Unfortunately, there is not a way to change basic shapes into BSP. The main reason for this is because UE4 is not a modeling program. BSPs are typically used for quick prototyping and blocking out a level for design purposes. While you can use BSP for a released game, it's recommended for optimization purposes that you create a static mesh in your 3D modeling software.

Good luck with your project, please let us know if you have any further questions. :)
