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"

How to change light direction along object location/rotation

I made a simple planet material basing on a tutorial (complete newbie) with a light like this:


with direction defined by a constant vector, and now I realised it's not entirely what I need, as when I rotate the planet the light direction doesn't change, and as it goes around a star the day side is facing the wrong way, and to change that I need to modify the red and green values. The system moves as a rotating actor in the center with the mesh attached to it. Can I somehow fix this without rebuilding the whole thing entirely, as I am rather content with the final appearance of the planet?

Also I apologise if it's a wrong section, I'm not entirely sure if this post should be here.
