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"

Auto-activate particles only in editor

I have turned off auto-activate for particles so that I can activate them in blueprints only when I need them (torches, etc.). But that also turns them off in the editor when I'm just editting. Is there an option I can check to still have them turned on when I'm just editting?

Thank you

hmm... not that I know of. You could however keep them active untill you are ready to disable auto activate. Or.. Not sure if it works, add a copy of the particle in your blueprint and make it hidden. It should be visible on editor that way. (but might take up some resources)

Yeah, I am not sure what setting them hidden versus not having them activated does performance wise. I can give it a try. Or else I could indeed deactivate them on the begin of the play and activate them as needed.

Thank you for your time!
