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"

Changing the streaming distance of a level in world composition

Hello, I'm hoping to get an answer to this problem I am running in to. My landscape in ue4 is about 20kmx20km, and I can't seem to set a streaming distance that is viable to see a larger portion of the world in-play. It of course loads in the editor, however, the streaming distance is way too small in-game. I still need the streaming for performance purposes, Though if I could get an answer as to how exactly I could change the streaming distance for the world in-game. The streaming volumes prove to be ineffective (or at least I'm not using them correctly). Thanks!

Product Version: UE 4.8

Make sure you have setup streaming distances. Sub-levels streaming distance is set in layers (top bar in world composition minimap window). By default all sub-levels assigned to 'Uncategorized' layer, which has streaming distance = 50000 units, which is 500 meters. When your camera is further than that distance sub-level will be replaced with simplified version, if it has one. You can create your own layers with your own streaming distance and assign sub-levels to it. Just add a new layer by clicking '+' button, load sub-levels -> right click on them -> assign to layer -> save. Simplified sub-levels also have their streaming distances, which can be specified in LOD details panel, when camera is further than that distance simplified sub-level will be unloaded.
