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"

Different shadow LOD in modular character

Hi, I'm making a FPS Horror Game and I'm using the system that was used in Outlast: Separate the head from the body to put them together again inside UE4 so i can hide the head but it's shadow is still showing (with cast hidden shadow) and the camera can't see the teeth, tonge, hair, etc... It works perfectly, the only thing that I don't like is that the head shadow has more sharpen edges than the body one does.

As you can see, the head's shadow is much more sharpen that the body's one.

And this is how it works. Amazingly, when I put the camera away from the head, it looks how it should.

Why could this be happening? Thank you so much in advance! ~Alex

Finally solved it, it wasn't a problem with my mesh or with my bp, it was a lighting thingy and nothing to do with LOD. Just in every light you place, put it to "Movable" instead of "Stationary" and it'll be solved! Thx anyways!
