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"

This was not intended to be exposed to blueprints. I'm going to mark it deprecated for 4.9, so old nodes will continue to function but users won't be able to place new ones. If at some point we fully expose Quats to BPs, we will re-enable this node.

Thanks for the report!

OK :( please tell the guys who decide on this that quaternions maybe very complicated and not for beginners but are REALLY REALLY VERY important in a 3d engine! It'd be nice to have them available in blueprints, too!

I agree and hear your concerns :)

2015 and you "heard our concerns"...

Two years on and still nothing has been done.

Come on, we've been really good.
