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"

4.14 sprite assets gone?

hello, i just want to ask, what happened to paper2d assets in 4.14 most of my sprites in my project got messed up, i was using some maskedlit sprite materials..

after 4.14 transfer, it got messed up, because the files were gone..

i could probably get the assets in 4.13.2 to make my sprites work again (have not tried) but ,i just want to ask, what happened to them?

will they be replaced or intentionally removed... or is it just my installation got messed up.. but i did verify 4.14, and nothing seems wrong..

apparently, these ones are gone

  1. Masked Lit Sprite Material

  2. Opaque Lit Sprite Material

  3. Transluscent Lit Sprite Material

  4. Transluscent Unlit Sprite Material

  5. Default Lit Sprite Material

i had to manually copied the plugin assets and migrate them to the new 4.14 project

i event started a new 4.14 project and tried to verify, and yes, these ones are not present in 4.14 ..

i wonder why .. hopes for an update / explanation.. as i currently relied so much on the Transluscent Lit Sprite Materials for some of my sprites..

TranslucentUnlitSpriteMaterial can be easly recreated. You simply duplicate MaskedUnlitSpriteMaterial, open it and go to General - Material Property Overrides and switch blend mode from Masked to Translucent.
