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"

HELP!!!! Can't paint texture in Landscape mode


I am new to UE4 and I am sure I am doing something wrong but, for the love of god , I can't figure it our. basically after creating my landscape, when I switch to paint, nothing shows up under Target Layer, nor does it let me add anything to it. even though the interactive tutorial says "click on the plus sign". well, I would if could...

anyhow this is what I did:

Open the editor (either 4.4.3 or 4.5) and selected Blank project deleted all the junk that on the viewport created a new landscape with the default settings and assigned the default grass material that came with the initial content. now I can sculpt and do pretty much whatever I want, EXCEPT painting over it. it wont let me!!

please help... this is driving me up the wall.

Your material has to be a "landscape" material -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHVuVVHlUmM (1st part of the video) After that assign it to the landscape - click onto the plus in the paint mode - create a layer - paint onto it (Ctrl+Left Mouse Button) :)
