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"

Water texture without shadows

Hi ! I'm having some troubles with a water texture (blueprint) from the water planes collection . As you can see on the screenshots below there are no cast shadows from the plants on the water. But if I try to remove the water, shadows are casted on the ground. Do you have any solutions or suggestions on how to fix this problem ?

Thank !

You're using translucent water, getting shadows on translucent water involves messing with the lighting Mode in the materials settings.

Or you could use the Lake water example, which is not translucent, that will accept shadows.
