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"

Static mesh creation

Hi, This is a general question for the audience at large. For a while i have been using the pre-created shapes to design my objects and levels, doors, windows, wall etc and the once many have formed what i want i convert them to a blueprint, however when i begin to apply materials to each of the separate shapes i created that form the blueprint its sizes increase greatly and the FPS drops enormously for example 120 FPS to about 25 FPS!!.

I am wondering if i am going about it correctly should i be using the BSP elements and placing many of them together to create my level objects and then converting them to a static mesh, so that when i build my room in the level for example it is from the static mesh objects already rendered and colored accordingly?

One thing i did notice is that with the old way i was doing grouping meshes and turning them into a blueprint is that is was usually reflective materials, metal and glass that caused the most amount of lag and distortion in the level, i will work on fixing that. For now though i wanted to make sure im going about this the right way do i use many static mesh(s) and created a blueprint or should i create the static mesh itself and use blueprints only for animation? Automatic doors, light switches, elevators etc?

Thanks Chris
