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 one turn an imported mesh to be subtractive? (for weird shaped windows)

A rectangular window is easy, just drop the window mesh and add a peace of basic geometry generated by UE and turn it to subtractive. But say I have a window in a shape of a heart... I would have a second peace of heart shaped geometry a bit smaller than the frame of the window itself and that shape would be turned to subtractive mode. Thing is I don't know if or how to turn a peace of imported geometry to subtractive mode.

Would;d it have to be a mesh or perhaps an option in materials

Thank you,

You can't convert a staticmesh to a bsp brush, so if you want to create a heart shaped window you need to make a cilinder brush and edit the vertex to make the heart.

Down the feature suggestion it goes.

I'm just starting out, but I gotta say there are a lot of features that seem pretty basic that are missing. Little things like this are quite time consuming and seem like easy fixes for their dev team.
