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"

I beleive this is the default behavior, you can create your own asset manager class and customize it to your specific needs.

If you havent seen this then it might help: https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-us/Engine/Basics/AssetsAndPackages/AssetManagement

I cannot find a clear example that shows how to register and load primary assets at runtime. there is only one piece of code showing how they do this in fortnite which is not useful for me.

do you know any straight forward example that clearly shows how I can async load a level at runtime.

I'm not sure about this because levels are considered primary and auto loaded. I know you can call Async Load on a primary asset id. Also maybe what your looking for is the asset register & object libraries?

This is about async loading assets:


I have used this to help find assets in the content browser as well:
