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"

Best Place to Save Assests

I've got assets from designers and assets I've bought online.

Where would be the best place to save them, on the SSD that I run UE4 from or on my backup HDD?

Will I notice any hang time if I was to put them on the HDD then import from there?

Ideally I want to put them on the HDD, but I also want to maintain a speedy workflow.

I've currently only got about 5/6gb of assets, so putting that on my SSD would be fine, but overtime I expect that folder to grow.

Product Version: UE 4.7

HDD is fine, your workflow shouldn't suffer any speed penalties since you aren't doing a ton of read/writes normally when using the editor. In the end, the size of the HDD is far more important than the performance for development.
