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"

Can I Achieve These Goals?

Hi guys!

I have a very board question that i wish to ask the community here.

I was a basic user of UE3 and created a few maps and scenes. I've only just downloaded UE4. I have a small bit of experience of creating a map that was used purely for walking around in UE3 and then packaged to an ios device so that the scene could be viewed on ios.

I have similar goals with UE4, and i wanted to ask the community whether these goals are possible, and if not, what do i have to do to achieve them.

1 - (My main priority) Number one goal is to be able to export a scene/map/level from the editor to an ios device, and walk around the scene using the ios device.

2 - To be able to use 3DS Max as my main 3D package to export models to UE4. I work in the correct scale in 3DS Max, therefore if an object is 500mm tall in the real world, i will model it 500mm tall in 3DS Max. How will these scale work with UE4? Which carries to my main question for number two goal, am i able to keep my current real world modelling in 3DS Max and play as a scaled person (approx 1.8m tall) to view my scene.

3 - To be able to use Windows. I do not have access to a mac.

4 - To be able to overlay graphical elements onto the user interface such as a small scale map to show where the user is in relation to a plan.

5 - To be able to create interactable objects that the user and touch and do something with. I'm not sure what, but could be something like changing the diffuse colour or opening up a small window with some text.

6 - If the user gets lost in the scene, they can hit a button or menu icon which will reset them to their start position.

I hope this is the correct place to ask these questions, and i hope all of this is achievable inside UE4.

Thanks to anyone in advance and thanks for reading :)
