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"

Should the Sun Position Plugin from Epic be Requiring Visual Studio to package?

This happens in 4.21 and 4.22 Preview 3, if I toggle the sun position plugin on it won't package without Visual Studio, turn it off, packages fine. This is an empty BP level with the starter content only.

Why would an Epic plugin need Visual Studio? For me it's not a problem, but for people at the company I work at it causes issues because it is tough to get Visual Studio installed on every machine (because of user privileges and IT) so their projects can be packaged. BTW this message only appears in the log window, it doesn't do the usual graphic popup saying VS isn't installed.
