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"

Lightmaps disappear after reloading level

Hello, I bake lightmaps, close and reload the level, and lightmaps appear to either be fullbright or gone completely; with the only thing causing any shadowing to happen being the dynamic cascade shadows.

What is causing this to happen and/or how can I prevent this from happening and fix the issue?

Here is a screenshot of theproblem (close to camera dynamic cascade shadows, distant from camera fullbright baked lighting): http://i.imgur.com/N5I5dST.jpg

Note: lightmap UVs are correct, texel density is adequate, lighting behaves as expected after baking, issue appears only when closing and re-opening the level. Are lightmaps somehow not being saved or applied correctly?
