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"

rendering on seperate "depth-layers"

Hi, I've tried to find an answer for hours today. Most of what I found is pretty old though.

I want to prevent occlusion completely for certain materials behind others. Basically, I want to have a world-layer, a layer for equipped items (hands in first person) and one for a kind of GUI that is part of the 3D world. The draw order should always be world, hands, GUI. So the GUI materials are always drawn on top of everything else and world materials can't clip through your hands/items. There just HAS to be a way to do this. Please help me with this.

What I found is an option to disable "depth test" inside a material, but I don't know if that is what I am looking for. I think I read people claiming it doesn't work at all. Anyway, I would still need to change the draw order if it does (and does what I think it does...).

The other thing I found is using custom depth combined with postprocessing materials, but as far as I understand it, this is mostly used for outliners and things like that.

What should I do???
