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 you model caves using the Terrain tool?

Can one Create Cave systems in Unreal Engine Native Terrain Tool or does that fall under custom geometry one would make in Maya/ Max etc?

In theory you could, but the result has always been horrible. I remember us trying it with one terrain at the top and one at the bottom.. but trust me on this.. It is much much better to create (modular) caves in a 3d tool.

(( Once the unreal asset store is up I will release something related to this :) ))

Hey have you been able to release something about these modular caves?

Thanks for asking :)

Still not released, but still working religiously on them. I want to be sure that the quality is good, and the variety is even better :) Some images here as well: https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?27744-WIP-Caves-Rocks-and-Plant-packages
