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"

Why I'm Having These Weird Shadows?

Hi there, after light build (High Quality) i'm getting weird shadows! is it because of my mesh's smoothing groups? *the edge is chamfered (not a hard edge) for the selected object *i didn't override lightmass value for the selected object, but i did it for the walls and floor.

Artifacts of overlapping UV's and low resolution lightmaps combination. First make sure those meshes have no overlapping lightmap UV's, then increase the lightmap resolution. The default value is too low for such meshes(walls, ceilings, floors, etc.)
