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"

I would say it has to do with your shaders/textures being white/grey and it messes with the human eye. I try to stay away from using white/grey in large areas. Have you tried a different color or shader/texure to see if the same result happens? Also you could try playing around with the lighting a bit.

I really don't think it has to do with the fact that my textures are white.

One more option would be to reduce mipmapping on the texture.

Mipmapping reduces the texture szise in the far view to reduce memory load.

Small correction, not memory load as GPU only needs one copy of texture to render a scene, in fact mipmap use more memory then normal as it needs to hold extra reduce sized textures in memory.

What it really does it to save processing power on something that won't be detailed anyway by using reduced size textures

you are the expert :D how ever maybe it helps :)

I've also overridden the lightmap resolution to 64. Would that have anything to do with this?

I dont think so... do you use static or dynamic light?

It's static.
