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"

Just to answer this more clearly for future readers.

Your template map does indeed go inside of Engine\Content\Maps\Templates


Import a thumbnail "inside the editor" to Engine\Content\Maps\Templates\Thumbnails compare the texture settings to the default thumbnail already in there. It needs to be a size of 200px x 200px


BaseEngine.ini needs to be edited.

[/Script/UnrealEd.UnrealEdEngine] AutoSaveIndex=0 +TemplateMapInfos=(ThumbnailTexture=Texture2D'/Engine/Maps/Templates/Thumbnails/Default.Default',Map="/Engine/Maps/Templates/Template_Default")

You need to create another "+TemplateMapInfos" line, and fill in the correct directories for the thumbnail and map.


If you want custom imported assets in the level you can also import those into Engine\Content\MapTemplates

I'm not talking about when you start a new project. When you select File->new level, while a project is already open, you have "Default" or "Empty Level," I'm looking to figure out how to add a new one, say "Basic Outdoor" or similar
