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"

Foliage ONLY on player start landscape tile

Hi everybody,

I'm using the Grass Tool for my foliage across a rather big landscape, a single landscape tile measures about 125x125km. Unfortunately my foliage is only shown on the tile where my player starting position is located on. As soon as I start to enter another tile the foliage is gone. If I put my player starting position very close to the border of two neighboring tiles then both tiles show foliage properly, but it's gone as soon as I try to enter a third one...

Would be great if someone could give me an idea where I should start my error search, thanks! :)

An interesting detail I've just found out, as soon as I make a certain tile "current" it'll have and keep foliage forever, no mater where I put the player start.

So that means if I import 50 Tiles I'd "just" have to make every single one "current" at least once, and the problem is solved. But I guess it's not meant to be that way, right?
