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"

Replicated Option in Timeline, what does it do?

I have a replicated actor that spawn and then I scale and move using a timeline. Now I'm looking for the best approach to minimize the stress on the network. I already saw that there is a option "Replicated" in the timeline. Since my spawned actor is already replicated the scale and position also replicate.

Is there any benefit for me to turn this option on? Does the replicate option in the timeline mean it will replicate the whole timeline(all values in 1 go) instead of trying to replicate the values every second/millisecond?

For me, replicating the the actor only create this rubberband effect. It wasn't until I replicated the timeline that the server and client actually became synced. I don't really know how it works, but replicating the timeline was definitely the solution to my moving actor sync problem.

Found it. You double-click the Timeline node in the blueprint and it opens the Timeline editor. The Replicated checkbox is toward the top right
