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"

Difference in polycount performance?

Is there any difference in polycount performance from UE3 to UE4? Just wondering if I can be a bit more relaxed with the polycount as opposed to UE3.

In general it's not much about Engine and more about target platform. Things like complex shaders and lighting will start bottleneck your scene far quicker than to much triangles. In general, make something look as good as you can and don't worry to much how many poly it have. You can reduce them later and there are LODs so just use them.

As side note try to have in each LOD level at least 2x less polygons than in previous one.
