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"

Hi Alexarg,

Have you adjusted your lightmap resolution for your mesh from the default 64? If not, you'll want to adjust that in the details panel for your object and set it to something like 128, 256, or 512. Stick with powers of 2 when setting this. I wouldn't go above 256 without considering that you would need to redo your lightmaps to be more efficient.

**Here is some information on Lightmap layouts from World of Level Design that is simple to understand and will give you some good key concepts to follow.**

If you have questions about your lightmap feel free to ask!

Thank you!
