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"

[REQUEST] Map instancing feature

In Unreal Engine editor we can load complex meshes, like a whole buildings as Blueprints, and this works in most of situations, but is very limited for effective work.

My feature is to add possibility to load in to editor some kind of smaller maps or just other maps, as instance.

Why not with Blueprint? Blueprint view editor is limited and you can't add some things like a Sphere Reflection Capture and much more. I know, it can create some problems with not so clever design, but on the other hand, it will be very helpful!

Another reason, editor overload. Now for creating big world it all should be on level. I know, levels can be connected and many moves can be done in code, but loadable map instances can just work better. It should load map instance (for example building) as some kind of billboard or simplified mesh for easy and smooth work on bigger levels.

Thank you.
