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"

Different LOD distances on mesh and instances, why?

I want to make my LODs appear sooner, but after changing screen size in the static mesh editor, it doesn't reflect the changes in instances meshes. Here is a gif that shows the problem - on the left there is a regular static mesh, on the right there is the same mesh but placed as an instance via Foliage tool:

How can I fix this? Thanks!

@Slavq I'd guess this is intentional. Screen size for static mesh is calculated only for this mesh, while instanced mesh screen size is determined for a batch of those meshes. So slight fluctuations of LOD changes from batch to batch are expected.
