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"

Texel density debugging

Is there any way of getting a debug view to indicate the approximate texel density that's required for an object?

What I want to try is just overriding the mipmaps on my textures such that it has a different solid color for each texture level, which would make it easy to determine which mip level is in use (and therefore the necessary texture size for a particular object). But I can't find any way of providing specific mip levels on a texture, and anyway I'd prefer to be able to do this programmatically so I can visualize it across the entire level.

Any ideas?

Yes, go to View Modes -> Optimization Viewmodes -> Required Texture Resolution. It's described in the documentation here https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-US/Engine/Content/Types/Textures/Streaming/Building
