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"

When adding objects, they turn gray.

When i go to add an object, the object appears normal in the content browser.. but when i go to drag it in, it changes color like it has no shaders.. what do i do?

be sure that the material on it is the correct one. Maybe your mesh has the default grid on it.

No, it actually loads no material what so ever. So i tried to add a material and it turns gray.. However, when i used it after this it magically began working.

perhaps this is just noob-lcuk

perhaps it is just one of those things that randomly effect random people... but irrelevant, thank you for your help

haha, it happens sometimes, so fix that, you just need to "update" the material of the mesh/actor

No problem, ask and the community will help. Pls mark as resolved, so ppl know you have solved the problem, thanks and good luck
