A common problem when constructing huge levels is to find individual
actors in your scene. With hundreds of meshes, it gets more and more
complicated to build your level and place actors at the right location.
There is always something in the way.

Helps editing huge scenes.

You can now use the “Show” plugin to hide or show individual or group of
actors. The clear design of the interface is self-explanatory and makes
it easy to select specific items in a fast uncluttered way. With a
single click, you can hide or show all actors, all characters or all
static meshes. You can then fine tune your selection by using one or
more edit fields.

A Productivity Plugin for Unreal Engine 4.
Available Now.

Version 1.2 has been released for Mac. Windows is on the way.
Tested with the latest Unreal Engine 4.12.4 under MacOS.

We will officially submit the plugin to the Unreal Marketplace as soon as we have

This image shows the filtered result of the settings above. All objects containing “wall” or “cube” in the name are now hidden by using the prefix -.

Another way to filter just the meshes you need, would be to disable the “Static Meshes” checkbox and then show for example only walls and floor by prefixing the edit fields with +: +wall, +floor

The Text Filter

To open the text filter section, double click on the caption “Text Filter” or click on the arrow left of the caption. Writing a word prefixed with + character will show all actors where the label contains the word after +. For example +wall will show all actors containing the word “wall”. Writing a word prefixed with - character will show all actors where the label contains the word after -. For example -stair will hide all actors containing the word “stair”. The filter is not case sensitive. You can add as much edit fields as you like to perform a more detailed selection.

Visibility, Ticking, Collision

The plugin not only changes the visibility. When you hide an actor, it also disables ticking and collision checking. Your selection works in Edit mode as well as in Play mode.
