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"

Lit everything

Hey, I'm making an endless runner for android and HTML5, and I want to not use static lights(to make the game lighter to run), is there a way to make everything lit without the need to put "regular" lights?

Hi Javyer,

If you're spawning your geometry in dynamically, as I guess you would with an endless runner, you cannot have pre-baked lighting. For static lighting to work the mesh needs to be placed in the level and built already.

One alternative would be to get your lighting as close as you would like in your modeling program and then bake that to a texture that can be applied to your mesh. That's just a thought, It's not something that I've personally set up so I'm not sure if that would work exactly or not.
