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"

Is there a way to disable physics for everything?

So the project I'm working on requires no physics simulation at all, is there some way to disable all physics permanently with a single setting or node in blueprint? Would this even increase performance in any way?

If you're not simulating physics... then no physics will be simulated. Don't worry about it if you don't set anything to be simulated.

Hey, You can click on World Settings In the Details pannel and override world gravity. Set it to 0. Hope this is what you're looking for.
