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"

Water Material is black

No matter what I try my water material is always black, What am I missing? I tried it on another map and it works but on this map it shows as black. What am I doing wrong? Do I need to rebuild the lighting or is there a setting not set?alt text

Hard to say without knowing what you are doing in your water material, but check to see if perhaps you need to add a reflection capture actor? That'd be my first guess.

So it was rather obvious... Had to rebuild my lighting (duh lol) I have some seems where the different points meet, Is there anyway to remedy this? or make them less obvious? Thanks for the reply by the way!
