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"

Material tiles in one mesh but stretches on the other

Dear all,

I just started using UE4 and I have come accross a very weird problem: I have two StaticMeshActors - one Floor_400x400 from the starter content and a standard cube. If I apply the same material to both, it gets tiled on one Floor 400x400 but stretched on the standard cube (see image).

How and why on earth does this happen and how can I have control over it?

Thank you for your kind help!

They have different UV layouts so the texture occupies different amount of space on both objects. In order to prepare UV's you'll need to get those meshes to your modeling program, or you can create another material with different tiling amount(with a texture coordinate node) for one of them.
