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"

Is it possible to change LOD based on scale via blueprint?

Was wondering if it's possible to force which lod is the top lod based on the scale of a mesh. For example I have a rock that I would like lodO to be used when it's at %100 scale but if it goes lower than %50 lod1 should be the top, lod2 if under %25 etc. All while the normal distance lodding is running. Is this possible using blueprint?

Also, would this work with the foliage tool?

Actually UE4 LOD's are not based on distance but screen space. So they automatically LOD based on how much screenspace the model takes up. Scaling it up and down will swap LODs already.

Ahh I see, that's great news, thanks for the info.

Now we just need lods to work per instance in the foliage tool and all will be perfect.
