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"

The meshes stored in Basic are all static meshes, which do not support geometry editing such as using subtractive brushes and vertex editing. https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Content/Types/StaticMeshes/

In Geometry, you are using BSPs, which you can read more about here: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/Actors/Brushes/

Have a great day
