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"

Dynamic Lighting Shines Through Landscape

I am creating a day/night system for a project and I keep running into the same problem. I have created a landscape and have a dynamic light rotating around the landscape in the sky sphere. When it is daytime everything looks fine, but when the sun arcs underneath the landscape for nighttime the light shines through the landscape. I have tried to fix it for the last few days and I was unable to find a solution. I also looked around the Internet and no one seemed to be having the same problem.

Hello BlueEagle,

We actually have a tutorial that shows you how to set up time of day via blueprints. There is a section within the tutorial that mentions what to do if your sun is showing through the ground. Take a look at the tutorial for your solution, but in short you need to disable the sun when it reaches a certain point below the horizon line.

This was taken directly from the tutorial's troubleshooting part.

Let me know if this tutorial helped you fix the issue, or if you need more assistance.
