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"

open world = 1 level?/ = many levels?

hello, I am planning on making an open world game but I'm confused on how to start it in this engine. Do I use one level and build on that as much as I want, or do I separate it into many levels and place them together? (Note: I'm not taking about adding insides of buildings/locations, I'm just asking how to set up the outside of the open world, where everything gets placed and the majority of the exploring is done.) Any and all help is appreciated.

Please and Thank you, Jay Rogue

For open world games, people are using Level Streaming. Basically you have 1 level and you can load chunks of other levels into the same level. Should be clear if you read the link and the subcategories, but if you have any more questions, feel free to ask <3.
