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"

Reducing Performance Costs For Levels

Hoping you guys might share some of your experiences with reducing performance costs for your levels. The main thing I've been using is the GPU Visualizer (I access it with LCTRL + LSHIFT and the comma (,) key) and try to see what I can comprehend from there. I notice lights do take up a considerable amount of cost, so I only set the most important to stationary or moveable.

Also trying to cut performance costs by setting certain static meshes to cast no shadow. Level streaming has helped a lot to reduce load times if you become experienced with that workflow. Also read about methods like merging actors and using instanced static meshes. Would love to hear your thoughts and methods. Thanks.
