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"

How can I have a single player change directly to multiplayer online?

Can you create a single player game and change it directly in an online game through blueprints without changing maps and cinematics etc,

And How can you create a server with ue4 that for example thousands of people could play on it around the world?

You can easily take a map and just spawn additional players. But everything else is up to you. UE can't decide what shall happen if two guys meet online. :-)

You can launch your single player game as server or listen server just by adding a command line argument to the executable. But I don't think the netcode can handle thousands of clients straight out of the box. :-)

There are no spesific limitations to the amout of players you can have on a server. It all comes down to how much trafic is going on and how optemized your network code is.

The more data thats beeing transfer the less players you can have online. Of course when a new player joins more trafic will flow over the network. So it all boils down to your network code.
