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"

Odd Material Splotches at a distance?

I've been nicking assets from other projects to just practice with the engine by making a horror game. I've been getting the lighting to look decent in a test level, but one of the materials is acting up (which I took from the free Apartment project on the store (The exterior wall texture).

As I move back from my walls of this texture, these creepy black mold-like splotches appear on them, as you can see on the wall in the middle. Why am I getting this effect and how can I remove it? Is it related to LOD?

Hey Bennick -

For clarification are you referring to the Realistic Rendering Map available in the Learn tab now or Xoio Berlin Flat available in the Marketplace and can you also let me know what version of the editor you are using?

Thank You

My mistake, I thought it was called apartment. This would be the Realistic Rendering Map's texture for the exterior of the apartment building. I am using 4.6.

Hey -

So I was looking at the Material and texture and wanted to check on a couple of settings that you are using. Are you using the Instance Material and if so what have you set the Normal Intensity to? Setting this value too high could generate some rendering errors like you are experiencing?

I am continuing to look into this but I wanted to check on this setting first -

Thank You

I had it set to 10. I switched it down to 1 and now it seems to be fine! Thank you!
