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"

Ah so it was your question, don't post questions as answer in some old questions.

Again, learn how to make new asset types (not UDataAsset which was created to make editor-less new asset type super easy), in progress you will create UFactory which is reponcple for creating new asset of perticilar type, it also have ability to implment import function


Best way is to check engine source code and see how enigne does that with other types, also you can look up some plugin that does that too, just search UFactory in UE4 GitHub. Be prepared that by importing you will need to hold the file data inside asset object (Asset object class) so it can be stored in uasset.

There also way to make virtual assets (assets without importing and creating uasset, just place file in content) i know FMOD plugin does that with FMOD banks so if you interested in that you can look up there:
