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"

[4.8.0] Two directional lights not supported on mobile?

Deploying a project with two directional lights on Android devices seems to ignore the second one (doesn't work in mobile preview either, but it works in editor). How many directional lights are supported on mobile, in theory?

It is hard limitation on mobile. You can have one dynamic directional light at runtime. Every other light needs to either be static and baked, or it will not affect the lighting at runtime.
