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"

Are BSP tags useless?

You can set tags for BSP brushes in the inspector. However, because brushes are combined during gameplay, I don't believe there's a way to access them. So, is the tag array for brushes completely useless, or am I missing something?

I ask because ignoring specific walls in line traces is an important mechanic in my project and prototyping would be a lot easier if I could use brushes.

You could convert your BSP brushes to static meshes, but I suppose that would slow you down if you're prototyping.

Yeah, the only way that would really work is if I pretended I couldn't trace against them until I was finished prototyping, which wouldn't work for playtesting. At that point, I might as well not be using brushes at all.

BSP tags seem to be completely ignored. (even if all brushes share the same tag.) I think this is a bug.

I have this problem to, there has been nothing done to fix this yet, while it is a pretty important issue, I am only not able to report it...
