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"

HISM Forces Default Editor Material

In 4.16 Preview 3, HISM instances generated at runtime won't show the materials of the mesh that is being generated, and instead shows the default editor grid material. Attempts to set the HISM component material to the desired asset yield no results, confirmed that material setting should be occurring by checking print string debugging.

Further testing with ISMs and HISMs reveals both reverting to default editor material in 4.16 Preview 3.

Did you tick the for use with ISM's checkbox? Materials require this for use with (H)ISM's :)
