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 to do a placement tool.

Hello! is there anyone of you that know a way to do a placement tool where you can tell how many actors that you want, load different actors in all potions and make them array directly after each other (Automatic, like reading transform from bounding box or something)?

Is this something hardcore? or am I just bad..

Pls help!

You can find few examples of procedural object placement in demo projects.

There is example of instanced foliage placement in Blueprints project.

Mesh random placement example in Content Examples project, BlueprintsAdvanced map.

Procedural fence example in FeaturesTour project.

Main idea is to use InstancedStaticMesh component and add new instances to it using some loops.
