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"

Landscape material rendering question

I have weight blended layers on a landscape, let's say I have 5 layers, and I only painted 2 of them on a landscape component, but the landscape still has 5 layered material, so the question: does the other 3 texture layers still cost the expenses on the gpu, or does the computer only drawcall the 2 used layers when rendering that landscape component, it'd be much help if anyone knows, thanks.

Hello SongOfDeath,

I believe the layers that are painted are the only ones being called. I do not believe the other 3 will be an expense on the gpu.
