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"

Unlit skybox get lit and lose its material


My problem is i want to make a simple skydome that i made easily in UDK, but now in UE4 it just bugged/not working just like many other things. Material is unlit, static mesh don't receive shadows and cast shadows and somehow it still has shadows and my material is gone...

Any idea?

Hello Ashkandi,

Would you mind showing me your material set up for the sky as well as how you have it placed in your scene. Things are a bit different from UDK when setting up your sky material.

I had same problem. I unchecked 'cast shadow' under material assignment in static mesh properties then got fixed. Isn't this a bug that 'cast shadow' flag is not ignored?

Unfortunately I need more information in order to determine whether this is a bug or not. In his picture he actually has a 'Skylight' that can also cast shadows, so I would need some further context as to his set up.
