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't build lighting, builds all but 1

I can't build lighting for 1 thing,

I used a method to see what's not being built, and the output log gave me this:Begin Map

" Cmd: DumpUnbuiltLightInteractions DumpUnbuiltLightIteractions Lights with unbuilt interactions: 1 Light LightSource_1 Primitives with unbuilt interactions: 1 Primitive FoliageInstancedStaticMeshComponent /Game/Levels/Level1.Level1:PersistentLevel.InstancedFoliageActor_0.FoliageInstancedStaticMeshComponent_1 "

Why isn't the lighting being built for these?

Hi PlanetRenox,

When building lighting with foliage you have to make sure to use a lower lightmap resolution otherwise the lightmap for the instances will be too large and will not build due to the number of instances painted.

Try using a lower lightmap resolution or disabling static lighting for your foliage.
