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"

All content is in the bad axis side

Why all maps, examples and content included the default arrows of the entities in the engine aim to +X and no to the front Y ? The front is defined by the default UVMap of the BSP and the Front view in the editor but all content in the examples and engine aim to other side why ?

This is crazy, please aim the maps to the true Front and the entities and examples content.

And the second problems is at import from blender the i got in the front the bad side.

Hi Hevedy,

This is intended and will not be changed. On the import options you can change the rotation of the asset as well.

You can also see our documentation here that specifically mentions that the editors forward facing axis is positive X


Orientation: All models should have their forward dimension facing in the direction of the positive X-Axis.

Thank you!

Then rotate the default UVMap of the BSP brushes to the same side.

I dont find the option in the FBX Importer to modify the asset orientation. We always need to rotate the asset to face the positive X-Axis...

Hi Michael,

When you import just use the Transform Tab and adjust the Yaw to the rotation you would like.

When character faces positive X axis, it's turned sideways in Persona by default, after opening. That confused me and i've thought that characters should face Y axis (so they open with "front view" in Persona), until i saw this question. Imho Persona should show skeletal meshes in front view by default (so users will not need to rotate every time to see their characters better)
