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"

Instanced Static Mesh Occlusion Culling?

I am just wondering if there is any support or planned support for instanced static mesh occlusion culling as it is very important to the performance of a project of mine, and seems like it should be completely plausible due to the fact that you can distance cull per-instance?

Hi Oscar,

We have a ticket in already for this with UE-13425, but it's currently backlogged. With that in mind, it's not likely to be implemented in the near future due to other priorities.

Thank you!

It's been a long time. I think it should be implemented as it's a huge performance issue. Occlusion culling on instanced meshes is really important. Without this feature, map becomes too costly :(
