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"

Level streaming important (imo) workflow question


I'm working with level streaming. Generally no issues, levels loading/ unloading as expected in various ways – this is ok and clear for me.

Problem is, I need to have it loaded all levels on persistent level in editor.

From doc's:

Important Details All Level Streaming Volumes must exist in the persistent Level.

This is problem, because with all levels and their assets loaded in persistent level work is very slow and creating other problems.

Is here a solution, for use something like level billboards only in persistent level? I know this solution from other engine and it works very good (map instances).

Level streaming is great way for game optimization, but it can be also workflow optimization with level billboards only. If this is not possible now, maybe this is good feature for engine?

Maybe I just miss something in docs...

Any help appreciated!

Thank you :)

i dont get what you mean by level billboards. are you talking about just having a visual representation of the level which you cant change? when working with level streaming you dont need to have all the levels loaded at once which makes things faster. also if your concerned about moving thins in levels by accident you can lock those levels. one more thing to point out you can open the levels individually to work on them while not in the streaming level.
