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 create instances of an actor?

When trying to procedurally generate a world, made of 10000's of actors. Is there anyway to make those actors an instance? I would all actors of the same object to be instances of each other, then If I decide to interact with that instance, delete that instance, and spawn the real independent actor in its position without the player knowing.

For fun, I am making a minecraft style game (as a break from my normal project), each block is an actor, but spawning those blocks kills performance, and hogs up all my memory.

100,000 grass block instances of a static mesh = 20fps on my crappy laptop 100,000 grass block Actors = 1-2 fps on crappy laptop.
