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"

Can levels overlap?

We'd like to separate our maps and have the terrain in one file, and all the other actors and scripting in another file. Fundamentally, we need something like UE4's "layers," but we're using exclusive file checkouts in Perforce, so we can't use the layers system in UE4 for this since that keeps it in the same file. We'd like the artists to be able to work in the terrain in one file while the designers do scripting and actor setup in another.

This is probably a stupid question, but is it possible to just have them in separate levels, and then load both simultaneously? One of us is of the opinion that levels have to be in different places, and reading the documentation for the World Composition User Guide https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest/INT/Engine/LevelStreaming/WorldBrowser/index.html didn't clarify the issue as we'd hoped.

You can use Levels browser as a "layers" tool. https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?22909-Team-working-how-to-collaborate-on-the-same-scene

One caveat is: foliage can not be moved to a separate level, as it has hard link to the geometry it painted on. Shouldn't be any issues with having an overlapping levels.
