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"

CastShadows changes mesh

I have ran into an issue where if I enable cast shadow on my mesh I can see some of the geometry of my low poly model even though I have a normal map applied to it, when I disable cast shadow it fixes the geometry but then it will never cast any shadows. I am somewhat new to UE4 and blender so I have no idea how to fix this and I have been trying for hours, the only thing I have seen to try and fix it was to flip the green channel but it didn't work.

I think I found what is causing the issue but not how to fix it. The collision box lines up with the lines on the model so somehow it is messing with the model when I check the "Cast Shadow" option.
