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"

.FBX and .OBJ are supported natively for 3d models. .FBX for rigged meshes, skeletons and animations. .TGA is supported for textures. (There may be others for textures, not sure as I only use TGA).

.OBJ will be supported in 4.2 but it does have some limitations, as noted in the 4.2 Update Preview:


NEW: OBJ MESH FILE FORMAT SUPPORT You can now import .obj files for static meshes!

The file format is very simple so keep in mind that it does not support the following features:

Vertex color importing.

Collision importing.

Tangent and binormal importing.


The model will be rotated if not modeled with Z up because with OBJ importing we have no way of getting the source coordinate system.
