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"

Understanding the Session Frontend profiler and AddSkeletalMeshComponent

I'm new to the profiler, but I'm trying to reduce the cost of modular NPCs in my game which is heavier on the CPU than I would have expected.

Specifically, there are a lot of entries for AddSkeletalMeshComponent, and I'm confused about why they appear every frame, as all the modular parts are added on spawn in, in the construction script.

alt text

If I'm interpreting the profiler correctly, it's telling me that modular hands were added on that frame and it took around half a millisecond? (Along with all the other modular parts) But these entries appear to be in every frame, despite by this point every NPC has been spawned with their modular parts.

If anyone has any advice for how to optimize this better, or if I'm understanding this profiler wrong, I'd appreciate it very much!
