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"

Emit color when no light (opposite of base color)?

I'm trying to emit a texture I have that is basically city lights for my planet, but I only want it to appear on areas that don't have light shining on them, ie the dark side of the planet. Essentially emissive color but with something that filters it based on light. But I can't seem to find anything that let's me "get how much light" there is. I'm sure it's something simple I'm missing

Thanks for any help you may have!
