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"

I would like to know as well as currently max ortho zoom factor is hard coded like this:

  #define MIN_ORTHOZOOM    250.0    /* Limit of 2D viewport zoom in */

So there is probably no way how to modify this without doing engine recompile... This is very lame. Same with editor default grid, which is most elementary thing in engine to customize.. Hope they fix this in a way it is externally accessible either via setting or console... For 4.15 and 4.16 this is not user select option. I do have small items as well and this is extremely anoing to not be able to zoom in enough. @Epic please fix this ASAP it is really anoing and impractical.

To change that limit edit that number to your liking. I changed mine to 25.0, rebuild engine and my problem is now fixed. I can zoom in to 1cm now :)
