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"

Render Text to Mesh

I'm working on creating a diegetic HUD for the space game I'm prototyping, and I'm at a loss on how to display HUD data directly onto the cockpit mesh, as if the info was being displayed on an MFD (multi-function display) built into the avionics console. I've already tried using a text render component positioned over one of the MFDs, to make it look like it's being displayed on the MFD screen, but that's not an optimized or elegant method, and I can already see it causing problems later down the line.

Is there a way I could render HUD data directly onto the mesh in real time; ideally, using a material and it's UVs to position it properly over the part of the mesh I want it to cover?

Product Version: UE 4.10
