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] Feature Request: Can we get Blueprint wire knots?

The biggest issue I'm facing with blueprints is the wires. It's fine when you have just a few nodes, but once you have more than a few, it can become a (hay)wire nightmare. Especially when dealing with local variables as you can only have one node, so all accessing has to go to one single node.

So I thought it'd be cool if you could create knots on wires to rearrange and connect wires without going all the way back to the node.

To convey my idea, I made this small animation: http://youtu.be/drqXWyHvmUw

Just so you know, your video's marked as private, so we can't see it.

Sounds like a good idea though.

It was still processing. It should be public now.

Yup, all good. Looks like a cool idea, though I'm not sure how simple it'd be to implement.

Nice animation too :)

Post it on forums too with the poll, i think this concept might get more attention there

Blender uses this in their node setup and it works wonderfully. Optionally, we can also set the knots to have hard edges vs vector edges which also goes a long ways towards cleaning up certain nodes.
