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"

Wierd light issue on one side of scene

Hello there, ive been having some issues with my light settup lately. Heres a picture that explains what the problem is better then I can describe it :) alt text

Sun position does not affect this, nor does light intensity, build quality or bounces. I have tried changing the light map res and re exporting the objects. none of them changed anything. at this point im out of ideas. Please help :)

Hey offe,

So there could be a couple of reasons the 'splotchyness' is appearing on the surface of your objects. My first couple guesses would be the resolution of your lightmaps and the quality in which you are building your scene.

We have a helpful wiki document for troubleshooting lighting issues like this which I believe is going to be beneficial in resolving your problem.

Let me know if you have further questions or need additional assistance.

Hello, thanks ive gone through the lighting troubleshooting allready and tried the things you sugested, sadly the result remains the same. one side is still perfectly fine while the other is messed up.

I seem to have fixed the issue by mirroring the assets in 3ds and resseting their xform and importing the right side as seperate objects, not a perfect fix but it works fow now.
