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"

Gnereating UV set in Static mesh editor

It seems that the ability to generate unique UV set has been removed from the editor, is there a way to re-enable it or did i break something?

Thanks guys.

Hi GBrodeur,

I'm assuming you're using the latest engine version 4.5.x since you're not seeing the it in it's previous location under the menu bar > window > Generate UVs.

It has now been placed under the details panel when you open the mesh in the mesh viewer/editor > LOD0 > Build Settings >

Here you can choose the LM resolution and make sure you have Generate Lightmap UVs checked before you hit apply.

After this you will need to find Lightmap Coordinate Index and make sure that it is set to 1 for the newly created lightmap.

This sounds like a bug I've reported with the generated LMs settings already with ticket UE-3102.

Can you do me a favor and provide the following:

  • Zip the crash folder that is created in this location: X: \ Users \ [ Your Computer Name ] \ AppData \ Local \ Microsoft \ Windows \ WER \ ReportQueue \

  • In your Unreal Projects folder (usually in documents) can you include the crash log and dmp from "Saved \ Logs."

This information will be relevant for me to attach to the bug report above.

Now for a little workaround and testing something to make sure we have the same issue:

Can you post a screen shot of your settings you're using in the Mesh Editor details panel where I indicated to change the build settings for the LM?

Thank you!
