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"

Blueprint Optimization

I've been using this engine for years and about to release an alpha version of my game to testers. I'm in the process of optimizing some code and I was wondering if there's any best practices or performance benefits to storing un-needed information in a separate blueprint.

For instance, this is an FPS game and there are a LOT of variables, and functions. The event graph is massive, filled with tons and tons of nodes. My question is, does it matter that all this code is in the same blueprint? Should I be storing some of this code in other blueprints to be called when needed?

I know that it's very possible to store most if not all of the variables and functions in other blueprints. But this is my first game and don't know if it's something that I should be concerned about. It does seem a little absurd to have such a massive blueprint for the character instead of a few smaller ones.
