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"

is it harder to render textures or meshes?

Im currently working on a simple cartoon game for fun and was wondering if its easier on the engine to have multiple textures and low poly models or to have a more polys per model but have only 1 texture map?

Thanks in advance, Danny.

Product Version: UE 4.15

Since it is a "simple cartoon" game, there should be too much going on at any one time, from my experience the engine only starts to lag if you have around 5000 actors on the screen at any one time, but in terms of textures and polys specifically, naturally having less will improve performance, however the engine should easily be able to run the sort of game you are talking about. Hope this helps :)
