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"

Problem of static mesh concerning reflecting of light.

Hello folks. I have a problem on lighting. It cannot be reflected from a surface. Let me explain what my problem is via a sceenshot:

alt text

There are static point lights on the ceiling and you can see the black wall on front. That black wall is the part of the other two yellow wall. Basicly they are one static mesh on which a yellow material is applied. So why the two wall 'parts' seem OK but the wall on the front. It seems like there is no light reflecting from its surface. Is it a lightmap issue?

Note: Lights are indicated by bulb icons on the ceiling. These are the lights I am talking about.

Thanks in advance.
