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"

Hey jkaszewski -

As the error says, your UVs are overlapped in your lightmapping. Can you post a screenshot of your UVs (both channels) and we can help identify the problem areas of the unwrap.

Hey jkaszewski -

Yes, your meshes are missing a lightmapped UV sets which will produce add artifacts if it doesn't produce a black mesh on light build. Take a glance at **this webpage** for some help getting started. As to why it happened "all of a sudden," did any of your lights change, if lights and meshes are moveable then lighting becomes dynamic and light maps are not used.
