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"

Procedural Terrain: Chunks as Actors or Components?


I want to implement a chunk-based procedural terrain using the Runtime Mesh Plugin. Since I don't have to much experience, I'm not sure what the best approach is to implement the chunks. I assume the two options are to either have one big Actor that generates new chunks as components or to have multiple actors and a separate object class that manages the actor generation. (The general idea was to simply split the world in chunks and then create new chunks and unload old chunks based on the distance to the player)

The factors I have in mind are loading / creation performance, collision performance and rendering. I assume that components are not rendered when not in view but I'm not sure how the collision works.

Can somebody give me a few tips on this topic?
