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"

Will this be 3d, as in, will you need to adjust the text's Z order in real-time?

I had something similar working at some point - clusters of stars, each with a label. Fully 3d. I used widgets sitting on a dedicated canvas and updated their Z order and opacity based on the distance from the owning object. The illusion was pretty convincing for something that lives in 2d screen space.

Can't say much about performance as it was done purely in blueprints. I believe I tested it with around 250 at a time. Admittedly the widgets were more complicated that just text. Did not really notice it impacting performance.
