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"

Wierd Lighting from wall

Hey guys, I´ve been getting this kind of light from my walls. So I´m wondering if there is anything I can do? I´ve been trying to switch on/off Shadow/Light/Geometry Two sided but with no luck. Or is it just because the walls are simple planes?

Hey, did you try increasing the lightmap resolution of the wall, and floor ? Bump it to 512 or even 1024.

Yeah, I tried both 512 and 1024 but no change

Try to make tha walls thicker. If you only use a single plane, often you get this artefacts.
