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"

Load new Umap ahead of time (Not Level Streaming)

Its common in 2D games to experience a game frame by frame.

Im interested if its possible to do something similar with my 3D game. However I can only find options that involve level streaming which seems to be a very inefficient way to achieve this. I want to be able to build lighting individually per map and have the ability to easily switch out maps for others. In a 2D engine I would just build multiple rooms and switch between them. However in 3D I need to be able to start loading in the room before switching to it, to remove load times. Its seems like this should be a simple tool in UE4 but Im having a lot of trouble finding it.


Product Version: UE 4.10

You can define the volume where the streaming starts so level streaming would be the way to go, see this quick video for a smaller example.
