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"

Hey lior,

It sounds like you want to generate chunks in packaging settings you will find this in the project settings. Next go to editor preferences > General > Experimental, there is an option called 'Allow ChunkID assignments' under the User Interface section. Enable that, and then when you right click one of your assets in the asset browser, you should be able to assign it to a 'chunk'. Assets in the same chunk should then be packaged into individual .pak files when you make a package.

Just as an appendage to the above. If your looking to just store packs for future use, you can also use the UnrealPak.exe found in the engine binaries. You pass it a list of files and provide it a name, and it will package all your uassets up into a nice .pak file. You can import pack files directly into Unreal and it will unpack them for you. Its a handy way to essentially make your own vault of assets.

I made a little python UI for myself (though the batch commands are super simple) and its very handy to keep reusable assets contained for future or for sharing.

Is there anyway to recombine the pak chunks into one pak after making them ?

can you give more explanation about "import pack files", please?

You just import them with the import button, same as fbx's or textures etc. upacks are a compatible file format for importing
