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"

Import fbx model from Cloud Storage on a mobile device


I'm new to UE4 and this is my first project. This is a general question if something like this is possible.

I'm planning to develop an app which runs on a mobile device with iOS or Android. The user can control a model of a robot on his device. Is it possible that the user can exchange the model by himself. For example he puts a new model into Dropbox or so and can download it directly into the app and exchange the current model, so that he can control the new model.

The important questions are:

  • Can I access a Cloud Storage and download a model?

  • Is it possible to exchange the downloaded model with the current model? (The models are in fbx Format)

  • If its not possible to import a fbx Model at runtime, can I make a kind of DLC out of the fbx Model, which can be downloaded from Cloud?

Sorry for my bad English and thanks for your help :)

Could you explain this a little bit? I can't find any information about uasset or how to use them at runtime.
