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"

Rotate the directional light until it's arrow is pointing up, then select the skysphereBP and in the Default section for the variables you'll see "Refresh Material" check that box and you should see this:

Ok set your source light to this rotation X -180 Y 90 Z -180 and then click on the Refresh Material again it should now go to a night sky like my screenshot

Another option is to remove the Directional Light Actor from the Sky Sphere BP and the adjust the Sun Height variable:
