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"

how to switch lightmap to another?

Hello ~

I'm trying to create the BP to switch lightmap.

I created two different lighting condition, and am wandering if there is any possible way to switch between lightmaps.

Thank you.

HI Desaicx,

There isn't a way to switch out the lightmap for a specific object or scene in this kind of way. When the lightmaps are built for the scene these individual objects lightmaps are packed into a texture atlas with other lightmaps. The best solution as a possible way to test and experiment with would be to have the object setup as it's own level within the persistent map (Menu > Window > Levels) that can be switched out when needed. It can get tricky to setup and confusing if you have a bunch of objects, possible depending on some circumstances.

Thank you!

I'm wandering if there is a good tutorial and documentation to learn level streaming.

Thank you Tim :)

There is an example level in the Content Examples project available on the Learn tab in the Epic Games Launcher. This level can be dissected to see how it works.

One user posted an in-depth breakdown and setup for using level streaming manually that should help you get started as well.
