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"

How to increase point light shadow draw distance

I am very new to UE4, started using it like 2 months ago, me and my friend are trying to make a multiplayer wave based FPS steampunk style. I made a grenade with a point light in it and it has a very nice pattern that looks cool with the shadows from the point light but like 2 meters infront of the character the shadows vanishes and i have no idea how to fix this. And I am using blueprints.

Hey Joalerr -

Take a look at the Lighting Troubleshooting Guide on the Wiki specifically the section under Dynamic Lighting which should help you increase your draw distance.

Thank You

Eric Ketchum
