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] [Request] Lazier OnTick event

It would be super handy to have access to some kind of more performant OnTick event which doesn't fire every single frame. Ideally, I'd like to be able to describe something like "Perform these not-critical-to-the-moment tasks once every X frames, or immediately if it's been more than Y milliseconds since the last frame".

Can't you use Timer for this?

Ditto what he said ^^

Alternatively, you can use multigates but timers are much better. Just type "set timer" in the blueprint editor

You can also use Timelines for perpetual but temporary/situational processes, and they can even output values based on graphs within them, execute delegates at specific times, loop, rewind, stop, play... you name it

No idea why I didn't think of that, thanks! Come to think of it, a more useful request would have been a non-essential tick event that scales with available idle time, or something.

You can use a Delegate Timer if you need to attach a specific Custom Event (and set Looping to true to call it repeatedly).
