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"

Hi Eyess -

When you export your model from your modeling program as an FBX, there is a checkbox that allows the modeling program to export smoothing groups. You will need to export your FBX again with that setting checked true.


You will need to be more clear, possibly a Screenshot, of what you mean by color busted. For the Trees' leaves coming in as polygons it sounds like you have not setup a material for them yet. Most modeled leaves are simply polygons with an alpha-ed out leaf on it.

If you can upload some screenshots of the issues and a copy of the problematic Meshes I would be happy to look into this further.

Thank You

Eric Ketchum
