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"

Sub levels constantly loading when using level streaming

So when I use level streaming all my sublevels constanly load, if I manually unload them (using BP) they reload automatically. Does anyone know what is happening?

For anyone out there,t hat's how I've done: First you should open the level windows by: Windows > Levels In the Levels window press the button "Summons world composition" on the right of magnifying glass Finally in the World Composition press the + button to add a new layer and disable the streaming distance like in the picture, and its done. alt text

Thank you for the solution. Been stuck for a day trying to solve this problem. Turn out it was also documented in Unreal wiki.

"Layers hold information about streaming distances, so levels assigned to a particular layer will inherit that streaming distance. Levels assigned to a layer with streaming distance disabled will be excluded from distance streaming, and can instead be controlled using Blueprints."

Hi Arthur,

If you right-click on the sub level in the Levels window, check Change Streaming Method and make sure it's set to Blueprint rather than Always Loaded. If they're all set to Blueprint, let us see some screenshots of your load/unload setup, or upload your project or a small test project that has the same issue, and get us a download link. Thanks!

ohh thank you, in version 4.8.2 there isnt any "change streaming method"(not at least I could find), however I solved the problem!! I created a layer with "distance streaming disable" and assigned all my sub levels to it. now I can (un)load the by BPs, if you like I could post some prints? thanks for the help

The Change Streaming Method can be found by right-clicking on the sub level in the Levels window. Should look like this:

Glad you found another method! Feel free to post images to help other users that may run into the same issue. Thanks!
