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"

Is it possible to preload essential assets, then load on demand on runtime whatever the game needs?

So I have lots of meshes, texture and sounds assets that really add up. The thing is, the player only uses 10%-20% of them at a time. The rest are not required. There is a base of, lets say 5% (like day/night cycle) that is always used and needed and I call it "essential" but the rest is on demand / required by a particular level or case.

What I would like is some information regarding how to preload what I need, so the user can see progress bars, then when I load a level, add another loading screen with whatever that particular level needs.

Then, again, if possible, while in a level, and something needs to be spawned but the assets are not loaded at the time, have it load, then spawn.

Thank you!

You should take a look at sublevels. You could put all the meshes / assets which you do not need immediatly there, and then load them via blueprints.
