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"

He was specifically asking for a material that can be applied to BSP geometry not a particle system. My first question would be why do you want to use such an old school method of making snow when you can take advantage of a particle system?

My answer would be that you can create a tileable masked snow texture and then simply apply a panner node to it so that it scrolls across the mesh. You would then place your brushes in the world in a grid pattern and apply the material to them. But I'd take Braff_Zacklyn's advice and use the particle based snow from the tutorial.
