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 to get rid of material seams on modular pieces?

Hello guys,

Simple question which probably require a complicated answer, but I hope not! Ahah! Im trying to make modular road pieces, but my problem is that the tillable asphalt material I made doesn't blend in correctly. The material is tilable, my problem is really with the object limits(seams?) when its connected with another one.

Feel free to ask if my explanation is not clear enough.

Thank you.

That world aligned feature is awesome, but it seems I can't plug my texture into it... its a pgn if that makes any difference.

Hi IronTarkus,

The seam issue you're seeing is because the UVs do not tile properly. The variations in the texture and normal map make this much more noticeable.

You can correct the UV or look at using a World Aligned texture.

Yes, world aligned texture solved it, and I fugured out that the "texture" need to be a "texture object" and not a "texture sample". Thank you. Still Im curious as to what a proper UV would look like for things such as roads.
