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"

[Bug] strange light on weapon

Hello

I have found a weird lightning bug. alt text

You can see on the picture that the gun is lit, although I'm in a "dark" room. This also happens with the standard gun. Is there a function in the skeletal mesh editor where I can see the light maps, because they are probably wrong?

Thank you for your answers.

What type of lights are you using? Only Stationary and Movable lights will allow movable objects like skeletal meshes to receive shadows from the environment.

I have deleted the stationary directional light and addet a directional light moveable to the shooter template map. (when I have both in the level it isn't working) Now it's working. Thank you! !

Hey Philipp,

I submitted this to the team for them to look at. I am also looking into seeing the light map on a skeletal mesh.

Best Regards,

Ryan
