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"

Shadows only show up for first LOD

I've got some grass placed with the foliage tool, but the shadows are only appearing on it for the first LOD.

Here's a screenshot:

The materials are almost identical between all LODs with the only exceptions being the textures and normal maps. "Cast shadow" is enabled for all LODs.

I got so frustrated trying to figure it out that I started over and made a new set of grass from scratch, but I still had the same problem.

Anyone know what's causing this?

Hi Evan,

I wasn't able to get the same results so I have some questions for you.

  • What settings are you using for your Directional Light source?

  • What settings have you enabled/disabled/changed for lighting within the Foliage tool?

  • If you remove the LOD or adjust the LOD distance does the problem go away?

If it's not reproducible with any other assets, like the foliage pack someone made here for free, can you provide a test project/asset that can reproduce this. It may be easier to just look and see what's going on and give some feedback if the information above doesn't help.
