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 want to bring the server logic to a separate server, which I will write myself, without resorting to the dedicated server of the engine itself

I want to take out the server logic to a custom separate server, but nowhere can I find an api in which the server and the client communicate

If you wanted to write your own server, you would also need to write your own API to interact with that server. I very strongly would recommend against this, and if you wanted to go this route I wouldn't recommend using UE4. One of the many benefits of UE4 is its networking capabilities, and I imagine you will run into many problems trying to separate out the networking stuff. If you want to look more into the source code of UE4's networking module, you can find it here https://github.com/EpicGames/UnrealEngine/tree/release/Engine/Source/Runtime/Networking
