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"

Do we have to optimize like in Hammer (source engine) ?

Hello, I used to use the Valve's tool editor named Hammer for Counter-Strike:Source and Counter-Strike:Globale Offensive. The optimization part was really important to have a nice playable level. For example, the brushs' faces not visible for the player had to have no texture (nodraw texture), or for example use the hint texture to "separate" the rooms for highter frame rate.

Is there anything like this in Unreal Engine 4 ? I saw an answer about streaming map level, but that's it.

I'm asking this because it's really disturbing to have no strict procedure to create the level and I'm like "Wow, I think I'm doing something very wrong and at the end the level will be unplayable".

Thanks in advance, Heldatch.

Hi Heldatch,

UE4 does a good job of trying to optimize so you don't have to worry as much, however with that being said, Optimization is something that you need to do for any game in any game engine that you're developing. The techniques and ways to optimize may change between engines, but still needs to be kept in mind while developing.

Some recommended Documentation and YouTube training streams:

I hope this helps.
