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"

Mobile Performance/Shader Complexity Problem!

Hello there!

I hope you can help me out. I'm planning to make a mobile game, and as always, I've started out looking for ways to improve the scene performance, mostly because I have a not-too-strong device to test. What I've came across is that on mobile preview, the shader complexity is all red, even for those materials/surfaces that are only a Const3 for the color, and at the same time they are FullyRough and DirectionalLightmap is off. I know that weaker mobile hardware have more issues with shaders, but I've fired up the Sun Temple, and took a quick look at the shader complexity there. Needless to say, I was pretty amazed by the fact that those materials, which use multiple texture inputs and somewhat complex math (lerping and stuff) have the same performance impact than my material with a single Const3. Any ideas on this one? How could I get a proper performance? Even a basic 3rd person scene is glowing red.

Thank you in advance!

Okay, what I've found out so far, if I use the Emissive Color node instead of Diffuse, the shader complexity shows a bit darker red, but still nowhere close to green.

I have the same problem. Can anybody help?
