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"

How do I stop extremely glossy and reflective landscapes?

I've made my own landscape with three different texture layers. After creating mountains I get a really annoying problem that I can't seem to fix. My mountains are extremely reflective. Below is the materials and also a snip of what the glossy mountains look like. I got it to look slightly better by making the level darker, but I'd rather just keep it daytime and have no gloss. I think there's a node I should be messing with in my material editor but after searching for ages I really don't know what to do.

Use Roughness and Specular inputs. If you dont have roughness maps, first try 0.9 for roughness. If it doesnt give the desired result then plug another constant(0.4 - 0.3 should do) to specular as well.
