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"

Can I tile only a section of a texture?

I'm currently using one diffuse, normal and opacity map for all the foliage in my game, however since I have some empty space to be able to quickly implement future foliage, I'm wondering if I can also use these texture images to contain the tiling maps for the things like grass, dirt, and sand the foliage sits on.

While I could find lots of answers for tiling an entire image, unable to find if what I'm looking for actually exists.

For example I'd like to have an image laid out like the one below, with each colour being a different texture, and then have sections 3 and 4 containing all my foliage textures, while 1, and 2 (red, green) being 2 different materials that tile 1 completely red, 1 completely green etc.

Is this even possible?

Yep it is doable. You can check **this link**. It is for UDK, but is still applicable for UE4.

This forum thread might also be useful.
