  • 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"

i fixed it.. my solution:

switch skylight mobility to Moveable now the shadows arnt pitch black on the ground any longer

so far i can see no reason, why a skylight used as filler to bright up parts where directional light not reach, has to be moveable to also work on terrain, but it works now, and i hope this fix wont mess up other stuff, a feedbag on this from the pro´s would be nice tho cause idk this is the optimum solution

no fix, this introduced new problem:

now small staticmesh dont throw shadow on terrain :( i made a quick scene render with scaled up mesh with and without shadow plz help fix the damn lighting ![alt text][1] [1]: /storage/temp/120472-dfqlight.png
