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"

Foliage Instance Spawning

So before I go ahead and do this. I'm just wondering how it has worked for anybody else.

Would it be more performance optimized to Spawn Instance Meshes for foliage through blueprints based on the actor location opposed to the foliage handling through the engine? I'm trying to think of ways to get lots of foliage while still retaining optimization. I've already setup dithering through the material.

Product Version: UE 4.20

Foliage handle system in ue4 is extremely optimized and works great. Not to say there isn't other ways, but I wouldn't be spawning that stuff, you could do it any way you wanted though.

Do you have any ideas for further optimization?

You mean besides optimizing the foliage meshes and materials? I would just place with culling distances and density.
