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"

You'll be happy to know that you can use spline with landscapes!

Splines are curves that deform the landscape along their path.

Landscape Splines

ttps://rocket.unrealengine.com/docs/ue4/INT/Editor/Tools/Landscape/Splines/index.html

go to Landscape Tool -> Manage-> Selection -> Edit Spline

I was going to suggest that as well but splines curve the landscape only on Z axis. I guess Aeson wants X and Y to make corners for a racing circuit. You can very easily make a race track with splines though. :)

Hi Aeson,

Rama is correct in saying Landscape Splines are the function your are describing. You can rotate the spline components by X and Y as well as Z axis in Beta5. Using this, the track can have curves that are tilted to compensate velocity. Please let us know if that does what you need it to.

Cheers!
