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"

Plane reflection problem

Hi, I have built a Space Station. It is composed of many planes. Some of the planes are solar panels and due to that, I set the material for them metallic with a roughness of 0 so it completely reflects.

But I see the reflections the wrong way. So when I am on the other side looking at the sun, I see the sun. I should only see it when I am on the other side of the station when the sun is behind me.

I have duplicated the planes and rotated them, because planes are only rendered one-sided, so I have now on the same point 2 planes in 2 direction. Maybe the problem occurs because of that?

You need to tick two-sided in the material settings and use only one plane. No render engine likes intersecting polygons.
