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"

[Bug] Changing Instanced Foliage Settings don't refresh instances on the scene

There is a problem with refreshing instances when making changes to InstancedFoliageSettings file attached to one or more meshes. Let's assume we have two such meshes, both sharing the same file with settings. I tested it mostly on culling, so something I'm not able to reapply through "Reapply" tool (or at least it doesn't work now).

1) Changing a value of culling in the file directly (through UE editor of course) and saving the changes make the new values show in the foliage meshes list as well. But instances on the scene don't change. I need to put on the list, individually in each mesh, a new value, then return to the one I've got in the file to make the change apply to instances already placed.

2) The same goes for making the change directly on the list. Values change for both meshes on the list and in the file itself automatically, but instances of only the mesh we were writing on change on the scene.

Also I think it should be mentioned somewhere, that attaching the same Settings file to a group of meshes on the list make them activate or deactivate all at once.
