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"

[Feature Request] Update Asset's Source File Version & Reimport

One way for unreal to play nice with our already existing pipeline and most people's pipelines would be if you could right click on meshes / animations / textures etc... and inside Asset Actions there could an option called

  • Check for New Versions

All this really needs to do is grab the source file location, check for any instances of "_v###" increment it, and see if there are any newer increments. If one exists, it could ask you to update the file path to it and Reimport.

It could be even fancier if it could do this periodically on it's own, or a 1 button global check all and alert you of new versions.

not sure how most people version control their imported FBX assets but this would save a lot of time for us!

I already know a lot of people are going to say "just always overwrite your latest fbx and back up your different versions elsewhere", but this would be a nice

Also I do have coding experience, just not c++ and not in the unreal environment. If anyone knows of any good resources that can get me started on creating this plugin on my own that would be appreciated as well!
