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"

Dynamically changing lightmap intensity?.

Im working on having a world that has dynamic lighting for both day and night, but I want to be able to have nice interior lighting with baked shadows so its not evenly lit. Im wondering though if its possible to dynamically change the intensity of the lightmaps brightness so at night I can dim the lightmaps and have more natural lighting.

This is what I have during the day

But this is what I would like at night.
