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 there... I've imported a DDS file from SpaceScape without issue on 4.15. Are you using SpaceScape?

The program is touchy... BUT, I've saved a 4k DDS file and imported (it takes awhile!) into 4.15. Just curious, use one of the existing files, like the purple nebula and save at 1k and see if it imports. Also, are you setting to SOURCE or UNREAL? I went with SOURCE, not sure why I did... (its been a few weeks)....
