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"

[Closed] What does "Enable Multiplayer World Origin Rebasing" do?

After upgrading my project from 4.12 to 4.14 I saw this new option appear, what does it do exactly? Does it allow me to physically go past the 5km*5km*5km boundary that is considered accurate for physics? If so, how would that work for physics driven pawns and other physics objects? Would they only respond clientside then or would they still try to be simulated on the server?

I'm asking because my current project requires quite a large world to play in and in my prototype I've actually used 20km*20km*20km - and even there it ended up not being enough. So my current solution is to split the world into individual chunks, each being 1km³, and keeping track of a virtual world origin offset integer value for each actor - thus increasing the total world size from 1km³ to ~214740000km³. This obviously brings weird issues with it, such as handling merging and splitting of players chunks (same or close to the same chunk), getting physics to not behave like a messed up implementation (you ever seen a 140m large object flip out and take out all players? Yup, that happens regularily...), etc.

Note: I posted this here because your forums currently always return an error when trying to make a new thread.

I forgot to mention that due to this limitation I can currently only have at most 9 players on the same server - which is ten times lower than it should allow for.

What? Where is this option? to enable repositioning of the world for multiplayer? Where do I find this option? please answer

Supposedly it allows for different world origins per player, but it doesn't do anything on the server.
