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 set a material on my landscape that recognizes differences in slope?

Hi,

Im relatively new to unreal engine and would like to create a landscape-material which automatically blends between sand/dunes and cliffs if the slopes get to steep. I saw this effect in the vehicle-preview-recording on youtube.

I looked at the sylized-demo-content and read about World_Aligned_Blend. Using this function I was able to implement a very basic version of the desired effect.

I would like to align the cliff-texture always from top to bottom, but I dont know how..

Thanks for the help

Hi Rouby,

I understand you want to calculate textures per slope but take a look at the solution to the post below. It deals with using height to determine the texture, so it might give you a few ideas.

Hope it helps.

Thanks, TJ
