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"

Material problem

Hi there,

I am using this material carpet_beige2 on a StaticMeshActor and right beside on a Brush.

The materials look very different. Can I get some help here as to why this is looking so funky and how I can fix it?

Thanks!alt text

Check the brush surface details. Simply select the surface and change the tiling of the Texture. (here is a small other post on it: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/37872/bsp-pan-and-uv-scale-issues.html)

and here is a video on BSP's:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5HKJyiPDVo

Here is a written description of BSPs and their use https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?1652-BSP-Brush-vs-Static-Mesh

The reason this happens is that The surface brush has its own UV's. UV's tell a texture how to fit on a mesh or surface. Your mesh simply has a different set of UVs than your Brush. But UE4 brushes allow you to change their UV's on the fly.
