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 to add directory to cook programatically?

We have a plugin and we want to make sure that Content folder of the plugin always gets cooked in any project that plugin is used. I was hoping there would be some way to specify directories to cook in Build.cs for plugin but can't find anything related in the docs. Any pointers would be helpful!

I have not actually done this myself but I have seen plugins referencing the needed assets during their StartupModule.

From LoadingScreen plugin:

 void FLoadingScreenModule::StartupModule()
         // Load for cooker reference
         const ULoadingScreenSettings* Settings = GetDefault<ULoadingScreenSettings>();
         for ( const FStringAssetReference& Ref : Settings->StartupScreen.Images )


Could be something you might be interested in.

You might be able to add an entry for 'PrimaryAssetRules' (in the [/Script/Engine.AssetManagerSettings] section) in the game config file for your plugin and have the CookRule=AlwaysCook for the assets that you always want to cook.
