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"

Hi Yuness,

You'll want to make sure that your using LODs for your trees and that you're also using Culling to keep performance up. This is extremely helpful for larger scenes and is common in all exploratory worlds that use dense foliage.

Thank you!

Hi Tom, is there any way to decrease the number of vertices if yes could you please tell me how?

The only way to reduce the number of vertices is to export back into your 3d modelling software and to it manually. But, it should be enough by making multiple LODs for the foliage and hide it by making a Depth of field post process, so it won't be as easy to spot the model pop-in thing. Hope this helped.
