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"

Ambient light gets brighter when not focusing on one object

In the third person example map after i added the fire particle everything gets brighter and brighter when i'm not looking at it. Is there a simple way to fix that? (i'm really new to this engine)

Hey Swaginator,

This is caused by Eye Adaptation (Auto Exposure).

You can disable this completely by adding a post process volume that is set to Unbound and the Max and Min brightness to 1.0 for things to be consistent.

If you like the effect in game but don't want to see it while working in the editor you can go to the Viewport > Show > Post Processing > and uncheck the box next to Auto-Exposure.

I hope this helps.
