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 get current sublevel (world composition)

Hi, I'm working with tiled landscape (world composition) + separated levels (indoors map)( like Skyrim) I need to know if the sublevel where I spawn my character is loaded before I spawn it (if not, it fall through the landscape) Now, if I use the "Get Current Level Name", it returns the persistant level name and not the sublevels where my character is. So, is there a way to get sublevel where my character is, then check if it is fully loaded?

Not sure what the plan was here from Epic - the player must always spawn at a specified spawn point using World Composition? This is really a huge hole in the process.

When dynamically spawning a character actor we need to be able to test when the level has been loaded. Ideally you can force the relevant level to load while a loading screen is present, otherwise you have some floating character which is a poor user experience.

What was the intended workflow for loading a level and placing a character in an arbitrary location on that level with World Composition?

Don't know neither. One year later I still don't know how to make a game with world composition because this engine loads levels AFTER loading the player pawn/controller/HUD etc. which is a perfect non sense while every other engines in the world loads the leven THEN the player when it's done.

As world composition use level streaming but without streaming volumes, I don't even know how to get a reference to one of the sublevels. Are they considered as streaming levels?

Ok, this works if I enter the name of the sublevel manualy alt text

But I still don't know how to get the name of the sublevel where my player is. Trace? Overlapping?
