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"

Auto Mesh Reduction for LOD

I noticed that in the static mesh editor, there is an option to auto generate LODs. I have also read that I need a Simplygon license to use it, however, I have also read that it's just a free built in UE4 feature. Since I am receiving conflicting information about this, I am hoping someone here could clarify. I would really like to generate my landscape LODs to save a bunch of time, but I'm happy with just making my own LODs for static meshes if I need to pay for Simplygon fees and royalties. I'm an independent dev and I'm trying to reduce the cost and overhead of my project, since I'd like to sell it one day if it turns out good.

TL/DR: Do I need to pay for Simplygon to use auto static mesh LOD generation in UE4? Do I need to pay for Simplygon to use landscape LOD generation?
