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"

Cast static shadows using a dynamic mesh.

When it comes to mobile, my skeletal meshes do not cast shadows for performance reason. Is the a way to tell the engine to use a static mesh (or primitive) as the shadow of the object.

I am thinking of implementing my own solution, but was curious if something is out there already. My solution would involve creating a lower resolution mesh, maybe even primitive, of my existing characters. I could then hide it in the game but still allow it to cast a shadow. Basically it would work similar to the collision detection system, where I add primitive shapes to cast shadows.
