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"

Menu in game (on a screen)

Am I able to have a menu or level select like in surgeon simulator where it is on the clipboard and the player can still look around, I have made menus via a HUD UI but this takes up space on the screen, can I have the menu and buttons be on a monitor screen or clipboard in the game, or is there another way to do this, not looking for instructions just a guide or pointer :)

Many Thanks.

Hey tedarnott316--Everynone is correct--you can use a Widget component to create a floating HUD that you're thinking of. You can place the widget component on an actor and orient it anyway you want with the actor or in the level i.e. like storing the widget component on a clipboard actor/model.
