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"

Loading/reconnecting speed with big worlds in multiplayer using world compositor

Below what I highlighted in bold is very interesting, I'm wondering if it will speed up the reconnecting and loading time when going to different tiles of the map on multiplayer. Its a big concern for me because I have a huge world with vehicles, so I would like to keep loading times low. Is this method almost seamless? Or is it pretty fast at loading? Since it says the server holds a visible list for each client.

From the World Composition User Guide:

Big Worlds and Multiplayer

Implement some layer between clients and unreal dedicated servers which will transform shifted absolute positions from the clients and route them to the right dedicated server, which only holds part of the world where client is.

However if you will disable world origin shifting you can run a tiled world with a dedicated server. Dedicated server will load all distance dependent levels, and each connected client will work as usual loading only level that satisfy streaming distance settings. Server holds a list of visible levels for each client and filters Actor replication by this list
