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"

How does level streaming work in multiplayer?

I am just curious about how level streaming works in multiplayer. How can it we sync up logic and data even when the 'level' isnt loaded. Especially with destructible assets. And is there an 'LOD' system for entire levels, instead of level streaming? Thanks!

Hey AemonBarz,

Please take a look at this post for a discussion on the topic:


LODs are used in Static Meshes and Materials, so I'm not sure what you mean about using it for entire levels. For Multiplayer, LOD should only change for the player based on the player's position relative to the Actor and not other players' positions.

Hope that helps!
