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"

What is the best way to fill a large room with light without using multiple PointLights?

I have a level that has indoor/outdoor locations. There is already a Skylight outside. I want to fill a large interior with light, I put a skylight inside and it worked great, but a error said I can only have one skylight in a level. Is there a work around?

A single PointLight doesn't seem like it can be powerful enough to fill the whole room, everything is maxed out.

Enough PointLights to fill the room with light causes the frame rate to drop way too low.

Maybe there is a lighting volume?

There's gotta be a better way!

Thanks :)

Hi there! Try turning off the inverse falloff in the light's settings. Then tweak the intensity as needed. It might work for you! Good luck.
