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 should I be storing level-specific data?

Since we don't have access to a 'Get Level Name' node, I was thinking I could store the name of the Level inside of the Level Blueprint manually and retrieve it. In this way, I would essentially be using the Level Blueprint as a sort of 'data storage container' to retrieve information from at will. I would have more information I would like to use in this manner.

I do indeed believe this is the wrong way to do it, so my question is this: how should I be doing it?

I've seen in a couple of places that I should be using a custom GameState or GameMode object but that seems wasteful to have one object per level, right? I don't know. Please help!
