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"

How do I load heightmap tiles in the level browser?

I am playing around with the new World Composition feature in 4.3preview. I can specify the heightmap tiles in the file dialog, but they don't seem to be detected (the Import button stays greyed out) although the files match the required Xn_Yn naming scheme. What am I doing wrong?

OK, found the reason: I was accidentally uusing power-of-two heightmaps rather then UE's required dimension (2033, 4017 and so on). I little warning message in this case would be nice.

One suggestion: Most imported heightmaps will have to be shifted upwards due to UE4's setting of the origin (at 128). Could you add a field for the z transform in the import dialog?

Edit: Ah, and another question/suggestion - the tile ordering of World Machine is different in the y direction to the ordering UE4 seems to expect, with (0,0) being at the lower left and (0,n) at the upper left. May this could be made configurable?
