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 Kosrona,

The error is that you're running out of memory.

There are a few options you can do to fix this: - Have you tried lowering the lightmap resolution of meshes? - Have you tried adding a Lightmass importance volume around your playable area? (this is not intended to cover significantly large areas) - Have you tried reducing the number of meshes in your scene that need to have lighting built?

These are some thing that can help, but at lot of this depends on your system specs as well. Light building is a very intensive process and can use a lot of RAM depending on the things mentioned above. Alternatively you can try increasing the amount of RAM in your system. If you already have a lot (24, 32, or more GB of RAM), it's possible that static lighting is not something that would work best for this large of a scene.

Thank you!
