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"

1 answer: sort voted first

Many people use vertex color to paint UNIQUE details into stuff, so that for example "modular brickwall 1" looks different each time it's modularly used. (for example that the vertex color acts as a mask that paints moss),

for that above reason it would be hell to make them in 3d app as you would have to re-export the modular asset like a thousand times with different vertex colors.
