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"

Sculpted Mesh surfaces VS Textured surfaces

Hi Everyone,

Im working on a mobile game and need to make quite a bit of changes to boost the game performance.

Was hoping if anyone here could help me understand the rendering cost on mobile performance for using "a flat surfaced mesh with textured surface material" over a "Static mesh with sculpted surfaces and simple surface material". As in, for eg., a pavement texture over a flat surface over a static mesh with the pavement designs sculpted into it.

Product Version: UE 4.14

Sculpted surfaces are rarely imported into the engine .It is common to bake relevant details, such as normal map, from sculpted mesh onto a low resolution mesh for later use.
