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"

Correct way of making sub levels

Hi there,

in my game I want to have a world map that contain cities. These cities can be entered and then I want to load a new level with the contents of the city. But when switching back to the world map, my Pawn starts at the PlayerStart again and every data is set to default on level switch. I think this is the standard behavior and I understand why that is, I think. In my use case, should I use the world composition feature or should I stream a city level in and deactivate the world map? It would be great if someone can shed some light on this.

Hey, I'm trying to do pretty much the exact same thing. Have you found your correct way?

Set a teleport and a target point when traveling to/from the city. Each doorway (or portal, or whatever you use to load into the area) should direct to a marker. Set rotation if needed.

Set each door to a cheat as well (1 in the image) to allow yourself to move around the map instantly. (provided you dont have any sort of checkpoint and load system.)

These can also run off an event, matinee, cutscene, etc.
