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"

what kind of caves? how have you set stuff up? are you using post processing volumes? do you block off light with a hull around your cave?

I really havent got into these renderering/light stuff. So this kind of cave, this is just example cave. alt text

I just setuped it by adding sprites and then changing material to defaultlit. After taking screenshot i removed directionallight, but it just made everything black and when i tested it with spot light light went sometimes just through at some parts and light just looked totally wrong. No, i dont know even how to use PPV. No, i dont block light off with hull, Can you explain Hull?
