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"

Rendering Part of a level when my player Enters


I am making a large level that is segmented into several smaller areas. Each area is like a small arena. Although they take part in the same map, and each segment is easy to walk to (Via a short cave, for example). They are all divided by barriers such as terrain and rock. Which means each area except the one the player is in Can have all of its meshes culled.

So, my question is: How would I achieve that? To be more specific, I want to have it so that when a player enters a volume, every mesh in the volume would reveal itself, and when a player leaves it, everything inside it is culled.

I understand how to use visibility volumes to cull everything based on distance, but if I can simply add a volume over an entire area, and simply Cull all of it when the player leaves, it would be massively helpful and will be very easy to me to execute.

Any thoughts? Thanks!
