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 tried that too, I gave up on getting it perfect. I believe it has to do with the engine itself. Thank you for trying to help anyways!

Think it's time to move on with this so I'm marking this as answered.

The mesh is already set to 'movable' for testing purposes, if that is what you mean by stationary lightning for the object. Increasing the lightmap resolution gave me no better results. Here's a pic of my lightmap if it can help solving this issue. Thanks. alt text

Are you sure? Built lightning several times and messed with this for hours.
