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"

How do I rebuild the lightning on a more complex map?

Hi! Around three weeks ago I finally got a good pc to work with unreal engine and I've only been working in unreal since then, so there are still many things to learn. The map that I built is quite complex and I'm planning to make it even more. After a few days of working I saw an error on the top left corner saying "The lighting needs to be rebuilt (1497 unbuilt objects)". So I started the rebuild which took around a minute or two, once it rebuilt, the result was a completely black map with no lightning other than the emissive materials that I made for the street lights. I tried the same process several times thinking it would fix it self, but no success. I could not undo that and I could not find any answer to this problem. So sadly I deleted the project and started over. Once I got the same error I left the project and opened a simple sample project to see if I could rebuild the lightning in a small map. Of course, it worked. But I just can seem to get it work in the bigger project. What did I do wrong? I dont know. But I just dont want to delete my project again.

Here are the before and after results. alt text

I really hope someone can help me fix this small yet important problem. I really need to rebuild the lightning so I can work with the lights in my project.
