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"

Hierarchical Instanced Static Mesh - tedious to build and LOD problems

As part of an optimisation pass we are starting to make use of HISMs for background actors and such. The only way we can currently do this is by copying and pasting the position, rotation and scale parameters for each mesh in the HISM which is RSI-inducingly painful when dealing with hundreds of actors.

What we really need is a way to select actors in the level and conveniently convert them into a HISM without having to build the HISM from scratch.

LOD distances also seem to have little/no control so meshes appear to render at the lowest LOD unless you get very very close.
