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"

Placeholder model replacement?

is there a way to automatically update my models with new ones?

I'm building a environment, and right now it just has placeholders for game testing, but as I'm building the models would be really helpful to have the placeholders just automatically change (when I upload to UE4) to the new models and keep their position in the world, not sure if this is possible already, but it would be super helpful. It's becoming extremely time consuming to place them twice also would be great if was possible to switch models and keep their position in the world.

I did some search on it but couldn't find anything about does anyone know something about it?

I think there are two ways:

  1. select the new mesh in the content browser -> right click onto the old mesh -> replace

  2. or just give your new meshes the same name and then import it into the same folder -> overwrite the old ones
