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 you create a static mesh dynamically, from a set of squares and their locations?

Is it possible to create a static mesh dynamically, in my case as a series of numerous (potentially thousands) square faces? This is to have a voxel-like Minecraft effect. The most performant way to render all of those cubes/voxels would not be to lay down each and every individual one, but instead to just draw the square faces. Is there a way using Unreal blueprinting to, in-game, create a static mesh based on a series of those squares put together, and place it in the world? Thanks
