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"

Closest Lighting Settings to Editor Before Build

Is there any way to keep the lighting and lights like they look before you build them? This is before building:
alt text

And this is after:
alt text

It looks at least ten times better in the editor before than after being built. The floors look polished, not wet, and there's better warmth and reflection.

I looked through the lighting troubleshooting guide on the wiki, but I was wondering, are there lightmass settings that make it like the before picture?

You need to use reflection capture actors to prevent that kind of issues with the floor reflections.

Well is seems better! Still not really the same, I've tweaked the few settings there are. I guess it's like a camera, the finished product never looks like it does on the screen!
