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"

Get all available materials in packaged game

I have a folder in my project that I'm adding to the 'Additional Asset Directories to Cook' project settings array. This folder could contain any number of materials, and I wanted to make sure they all got packaged with the game

All I would like to do is return an array of all available materials in the game so I can start applying these to some procedural mesh components at runtime

Is there a build in function I've missed to get this?

I ended up using the UObjectLibrary to do this in the end

    auto Library = UObjectLibrary::CreateLibrary(MaterialClass, true, GIsEditor);
    TArray<FAssetData> Assets;
    for (auto& Asset : Assets)
       UMaterial* mat = Cast<UMaterial>(Asset.GetAsset());
